Austin Healey Sprite

Austin Healey Sprite

Small, sporty and cute, the Austin Healey Sprite was produced between 1958 and 1971 as an affordable sports car with good performance.

It was known in the UK as a “frogeye” and in the US as a “bugeye”, and it is this characteristic that gives the painting its personality and an air of liveliness and friendliness.

Made on white Mi-Teintes paper with dry pastel, with the bodywork in its most characteristic colour: the unmistakable green of the 100% “British” sports cars.
