“Fantasmagorical” new painting by Robert Sherman!


Robert Sherman’s new painting “Fine Four Fendered Friend” is inspired by the magical motorcar Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels, also wrote a children’s book called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Although aimed at the younger set, it was really more of a cold war spy satire than anything else.

In 1968 “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was was produced as a motion picture by Albert R. “Cubby” Broccoli, famous for bringing the James Bond novels to the screen. Cubby asked Robert and Richard Sherman, who a few years earlier had won two academy awards for their music in Disney’s “Mary Poppins”, to write the songs for “Chitty”. The film’s team included other “Poppins” alumni, including Dick Van Dyke and musical director Irwin Kostal.

The film’s title song “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” brought the Sherman Brothers their third Academy Award Nomination.

The new stage musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”, featuring the songs of the Sherman Brothers, debuts at the London Palladium in 2002. Great excitement surrounds the play, with over £2 million of tickets sold prior to the show’s opening.

What is a Giclée?

Robert Sherman’s fine art limited editions are museum quality. The type of print is called a Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay), which is a fine art digital print created with a high resolution Iris Printer.

Iris Giclées have an impressive exhibition record with museums and galleries throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum (New York), The Los Angeles County Museum and The British Art Museum.

Robert Sherman works with one of the most respected fine art printmakers to create his fine art limited editions. Only the best quality materials are used, including the most archival (life preserving) water-based organic inks available in the world. Each print receives a UV and light retardant coating to further protect the art.

Our Deluxe Edition Giclée is printed on artist cotton canvas, and each Giclée is varnished for moisture protection. Our Paper Edition Giclée is printed on heavy Somerset Velvet 100% cotton paper which is archival and acid free.

You will receive a Certificate of Authenticity for each Giclée. We have taken the utmost care to provide you with a beautiful, high quality work of art. We hope you will enjoy your fine art limited edition by Robert Sherman!
