Poster Art Info
This year’s poster art is by Virginia artist, Sandy Lawrence. This highly detailed pencil drawing shows Marion duPont Scott’s horse, Battleship, leading over Becher’s Brook in the Grand National on March 25, 1938. This year marks the 75th anniversary of his Grand National win which put him down in the record books as the first American bred and American owned horse to win the Grand National. He is still the smallest horse to ever win, with the youngest jockey, Bruce Hobbs who was only 17.
This win catapulted Marion duPont Scott and her Montpelier Racing stable into international fame. See more about the story on this website at Story of Battleship page.
Sandy Lawrence’s art education was with the community of artists of Virginia. She studied decorative arts at Ina Marx’s Finishing School in Great Neck, NY and her work is represented in many homes in Virginia as well as Mary Baldwin College and the National Paint and Coatings Association in DC. She lives in Charlottesville and is pursuing her love of portraiture.
