A major philanthropic event raised in excess of 1.7 million British pounds at the Home of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, West Sussex, on Saturday 21st September 2019. Rolls-Royce’s ‘Evelina Art for Allergy x Dine on the Line’ was held in support of allergy research at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
The star of the show was undoubtedly a Phantom, a collaboration between Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and world-renowned artist Marc Quinn. The winning bidder of this headline lot is a valued collector of the marque. Marc Quinn will now create a bespoke artwork featuring the iris of the winning bidder’s daughter, using Rolls-Royce Phantom as his canvas. The highly personalised and creative work of art raised an auspicious 888k, with the generous patron excitedly bidding well over 1 million in total during the course of the evening. The artwork takes inspiration from Quinn’s on-going series of iris paintings, named We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars.
