We’re not in the Swiss Alps but it might feel that way with this vintage horse race painting. After all, Aarau is known for the most beautiful horse racing turf in all of Switzerland. Located on the Swiss plateau in the Valley of the Aare, Aarau is a beautiful old historic town. Unlike other small quaint Swiss towns, Aarau played an important role in the development of Switzerland. It is a German speaking town that was declared the first seat of the Helvetic government. Not bad for a small town. But it has also been home to horse racing since 1921. The first permanent turf course was built back in 1947 and has drawn huge crowds of horse racing fans ever since.
Vintage Horse Race Painting
So much for History 101. Let’s get back to this painting. This over sized painting is perfect for any horse racing fan. It’s painted on a metal canvas constructed from old tin roofs. Pieced together with screws and bolts this is no light weight painting. The distressed metal with nail holes and imperfections only add to the rich hues of yellow, green and brown. Get ready to saddle up and hang this painting on any wall in your home. It will be enjoyed by all family and friends. But sorry no betting allowed.
