The Art of Ascot

Royal Ascot Poster

This year’s Royal Ascot poster (above) is the work of artist David Mach. The Daily Telegraph published an illuminating piece on art at Ascot:

 

In advance of Royal Ascot new sculptures are invited into the grounds: one – called The Icon – was made from the nose cone of Concorde; this year an artist will work on a clay maquette while people watch. If the works are sold, Ascot will take a small commission, but it is the chance to exhibit art rather than the money that is the point, says [Charles] Barnett [Ascot Chief Exec.].
