EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of Dorothy Levitt, known as "the Fastest Girl on Earth. " Created by Frederick Hammersley Ball, this artwork showcases Levitt's groundbreaking achievements in the world of motorsports. Commissioned for Tatler Magazine, it beautifully portrays Levitt as a trailblazing figure who defied gender norms and shattered records. Levitt, born on January 5th, 1882, was not only the first British woman to compete in a motor race but also held numerous speed records during her career. The image depicts her poised confidently beside a car, adorned with record-breaking scarves and gloves that symbolize her triumphs on the racetrack. The painting transports us back to an era when female racers were a rarity. Levitt's determination and passion shine through her gaze as she dons a stylish hat that perfectly complements her motoring attire. Her presence challenges societal expectations while embodying grace and strength. Ball's attention to detail brings Levitt's story to life; every brushstroke highlights her pioneering spirit and love for speed. This print serves as a reminder of Levitt's significant contribution to both motorsports history and women's empowerment. Displayed at Bourne Gallery in Reigate, Surrey, this piece is now part of a private collection but continues to inspire generations with its timeless depiction of courage and ambition.
