The Cadillac name and automobile have inspired many an artist, both amateur and professional.  By artist I mean painter, photographer, sculptor, musician, etc. The significance of the name and the quality of the automobile that bears it have inspired also many manufacturers to so name their own products. These have ranged from boats, to cigars and household appliances.  I will display some of the better drawings, paintings, photos, sculptures and other miscellaneous artifacts bearing the Cadillac name that I have come across in over 45 years of collecting Cadillac memorabilia.

The topic is so vast that I have had to split this section into the following, general sub-categories (further ones may be created in due course, as requirements dictate): 

1.  Cadillac paintings of all kinds comprise the main section [this page].  The provenance of some of the images is not known so, if you happen to recognize any of them, please help me identify the artist and I will give him due credit for his work. I have included some works by Cadillac's own artists and designers, although the accent here will be on artwork extraneous to the Cadillac organization.

1a.  Cadillac art in black & white  (charcoal sketches, line drawings, cartoons, etc.)

2.  Artistic photos of Cadillac automobiles

3.  Cadillac sculptures and 3-dimensional art [excluding toys and scale models covered here]

4.  Decorative plaques and mirrors carrying a Cadillac theme

5.  Collectible Cadillac "art" cards

6.  Cadillac-inspired  home and office furniture, as well as home fittings

7.  Tableware and glassware inspired by the Cadillac automobile or bearing the Cadillac crest

8.  Cadillac-inspired clothing and fashion items (including jacket patches and belt buckles)

9. Cadillac-inspired jewelry and related items (including charms, coins, medals,
pendants, pins, tokens, etc.)

10.  Cadillac keys fobs, lighters and pocket knives

11.  Cadillac inspired clocks and watches.

12.  Art inspired by the 1959 Cadillac, an American icon

13.  Miscellaneous other products that use the Cadillac name, inspired either by the
French explorer or by the world renown of the Cadillac automobile.

14.  Cadillacs in songs and music are covered in this section.

15.  Cadillacs featured in movies are covered in this section

Cadillac Art by James Cleworth

"Arturs", wrote some unkind things in the Guest Book on Feb. 23, 2001; to set the record straight,
here is what I know about Mr. Cleworth, the Collectible Auto Artist
; he was the subject of an article in
CA 6/1986, p.71-75; the works mentioned include a blue, 1956 Coupe de Ville that was sold to a
Swiss bank executive for $5000 (the only blue Coupe de Ville of Cleworth's that I have seen is
the 1957 model (lower row, left); I have not seen either his painting of a '59 Cadillac with a smashed
front LH fender.  Another article on this skilled auto artist appeared in Car Collector, 3/91


With regard to the art of James Cleworth, Database visitor Larry Frank wrote: FYI, the two Cleworth paintings (...57 Coupe de Ville and the '38-39 Cadillac / La Salle) are in my personal collection. I was Harold's publishing partner for some years and I know of no other Blue Caddy painting....It might have been before my time, but I would think I would have heard of it. You have a great site....I'll be back!

Cartoon-style color rendering of the 1957-58 Eldorado Brougham

In 2011, enthusiast Erik Deneyer commented: The [1953 Eldorado] drawing was made by Daniël Desorgher, artist of the series “Jimmy Tousseul”, first published by Dupuis and, later on, by Glénat. The drawing was made external for sale (as an ex-libris) and isn’t an image out of one of the comic albums. Though it wouldn’t surprise me if there were actual Cadillacs represented in the Jimmy Tousseul albums. In La Liste 66 from Eric Stalner a Cadillac Eldorado [Brougham] is used as well [photo above]

Left: this accurate representation of the 1938 Series 75
convertible sedan  appeared in the comic strip, Tintin in Tibet

Right: the car was made available also as a 1:43 scale miniature

So far as I know, the only other Cadillac featured in any of Hergé's comics is a 1957-58
Eldorado Brougham; it is easily recognizable on the forecourt of Marlinspike Hall (Chateau
de Moulinsart), in the closing illustrations (?) of  one adventure of which I don't recall the name


1 The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin)    is one of the most popular comic strips of the 20th century. Drawn and written by the late Belgian writer-artist, Georges Remi a.k.a. "Hergé" [which are his initials, sounded in French and reversed, i.e. "RG"].  Some 200 million copies had been sold by the end of the first millennium (2000) and there have been translations into nearly 60 languages. The hero is a young Belgian reporter and globe-trotter named Tintin; among the cast of characters are Snowy the dog (Milou in the original), Captain Haddock, Professor Cuthbert Calculus (Tryphon Tournesol in the original) and the comical detective-duo, Thomson & Thompson (Dupont & Dupond  in the original). The action takes place in many recognizable countries, cities and landmarks and the books are replete with cars of all years and models A MUST FOR CAR BUFFS OF ALL AGES, from 7 to 77 !

Cadillac Art by Steven John Koeppe

ar60cv.jpg (8151 bytes)
Back in the 1960's, bumper stickers and window decals proudly declared Love It Or Leave It , implying that if you didn't love America (exactly like the guy driving the car) you should
get the hell out of Dodge. Unfortunately, such attitudes are still alive and well, today.  John painted this wasted Cadillac as a metaphor for where such thinking has taken us.
We put business interests ahead of environmental and social concerns, we're in debt up to our necks again, and style is valued way ahead of substance. Heading
hell-bent down a bumpy road, we may be headed for a total breakdown.

Cadillac Art by Günter May

Günter May was born in 1953 in Schüller/Eifel (south of Cologne).  He was trained as a typesetter and also attended a school of art and design. He studied art and design at Düsseldorf University.  Since 1982 he has worked as a freelance illustrator in Düsseldorf.  Among his clients are the German parliament (Bundestag),  post office,  Ministry of Agriculture of Rhineland-Palatinate, Düsseldorf Museum of Art and Ministry of Culture and Education of Rhineland-Palatinate.  His fascination with Cuba's unique way of life, where Classics of the fifties form part of every day life, is amply reflected in this group of four paintings of 1947, 1953 and 1958 Cadillacs that he saw there.  He has a web site where these and other car paintings of his may be admired.

Cadillac Art by E.R. McIntosh

art12.jpg (7006 bytes)
This artist's work was identified kindly by Scott Braunstein.

In June 2003, he wrote this to the CLC:
I was at a yard sale and found a neat looking painting of a car (1912 Touring Cadillac). I was amazed by the print and wanted to learn more about it. So I got to a Web site and searched on "paintings cadillac"; there I found your site containing various prints from different artists. As I scrolled down, I saw a section labeled unknown artists.

The artist wrote last year: Hello, my name is Thom Petersen and I am an Automotive Artist.
I have been doing this professionally since 1979. My art has been featured in many major Automobile Magazines and Art Text Books on airbrushing. The site is one that might interest
you. Actually, it's my art gallery of automobile art. I have many Cadillacs on it and I am sure
that you'll find some enjoyment in it. Thanks for your kind attention. Yours Truly, Thom

Cadillac & LaSalle Art by Jack Pumphrey

Jack never stopped drawing pictures of cars, boats & people from the time he was just a kid in grade school.
He was once asked, "Have you been doing this all your life?". "Well, not yet!" he answered with a wry smile.
Self-taght as a precise pen & inl artist, Jack has now incorporated water color and markers to brighten up
his detailed art. I work from photographs that customers send me from all over America, Canada & Europe,
via eMail [inkyarts(at)comcast.net].  Jack provides  portraits of classic cars, yachts and other transportation art
out of his home-based studio in Las Cruces, NM. Samples of his work may be previewed at jackpumphreyarts.com

Cadillac Art by Dan Reed

Dan started drawing very young.  He studied art at Westchester University in the early 90s, where he completed a series of pen and ink drawings of the 19th century campus buildings. Today, as may be seen in the examples below, the bulk of his work realtes to his love of classic cars.

100 x 130 cm, oil on canvas (2006)


1972 II, ATF-88
180 x 220 cm, oil on canvas (2006)

In 1988 Hein Vandervoort graduated from the Royal Academy for the Arts in the Hague.  He has received several subsidies from the Fonds voor de Beeldende Kunsten and his paintings have been bought by such institutions as the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Rijksdienst Beeldende Kunst in The Hague etc.  For many years Hein's work has been influenced by his travels through the United States and his paintings have been inspired by photographs taken during these trips. The images he uses are related to experiences, locations, various items etc., rendered in his distinctive style and use of colour.  Sadly, in 2001 many of Hein's paintings were destroyed in a fire at his studio. The fire did not change the focus of his work and in the period immediately following this catastrophe he set about reconstruction 13 paintings that earlier had been purchased by Link Contemporary Art in the Hague. Since the fire all his works are denoted with the initials ATF (after the fire).

Edward L. (Ted) Welch is an established automotive artist based in McAlester, OK. Born in Hughes Springs, Texas in 1938, Ted's love of the automobile developed from an early age. His talent as a technical illustrator led to a career in new 
aircraft and weapons systems concepts.  In 1987, he began focusing his talents almost exclusively on automobiles.  He says, I started painting classic automobiles with enthusiasm and a passion that is hard to understand or explain.
There are several reasons I chose to paint automobiles... the availability of subject matter and an interest in automobiles that existed since childhood, and skills I have acquired in both fine art and technical art.
His work resides in private and corporate collections across the United States. Ted's preferred mediums for automotive illustrations are watercolor/gouache and acrylics.

Cadillac Art by Paul Zanetti

Paul was born in 1961. He started cartooning at age nine, drawing the teachers in school ...and getting kicked out of class. He knew then that cartooning was his future. At age 18 he was appointed editorial cartoonist for the Sydney Daily Telegraph. He was Australia's youngest editorial cartoonist.  Today he is independently syndicating cartoons throughout Australia and overseas.

When he saw his first Cadillac (a '59 Eldorado Biarritz!) it was love at first sight and has been a lifetime love affair. Paul hs owned a number of collectible Cadillacs since the late 1980s.

His hobbies include Michelle, the children, architecture, restoring Cadillacs, locating and restoring mid-20th century modern furniture, collecting and landscaping cacti and succulents.

( résumé en français)

Les automobiles Cadillac ont été source d'inspiration pour de nombreux artistes tant amateurs que professionnels (j'entends par "artiste" les artistes peintres, photographes, sculpteurs at autres musiciens).

Cette page est consacrée aux meilleurs dessins, tableaux, photos, sculptures qu'il m'a été donné d'admirer depuis plus de 45 ans que je suis collectionneur de Cadillac.

Je n'ai pas inclus l'ensemble des dessins et tableaux realisés au sein même de l'entreprise; il se pourrait cependant que par la suite je leur consacre plusieurs pages!

Pour ce qui est des Cadillac en chanson et en musique, reportez vous a cette page.
