About "April at Augusta"
After visiting Augusta to record in oil his own special perspective on
this year’s Masters, LeRoy Neiman stated unequivocally: “The Augusta
National is the most beautiful golf course I’ve ever seen.” This
magnificent work confirms his observation. In the foreground Jack
Nicklaus follows through on the tenth tee while Nick Faldo watches,
flanked by Fanny, his Swedish woman caddy, and Jack’s son, Jackie,
holding his clubs. The artist has carefully noted Nicklaus’ trimmer
form, classic swing, and even his interlock grip. “Nicklaus and Faldo
are the only two to ever win back-to-back Masters(as of 1990),” Neiman
observed. Augusta’s sweeping view allows one to take in much of this
great old course at a glance. To the left of Faldo circled by the
gallery, a golfer chips on to the ninth green. Directly behind Nicklaus
is the practice putting green, filled with hopefuls who practice holing
out. Almost dead center in the composition, a player and a caddy make
their way from the putting green to the first tee, where a
yellow-shirted golfer admires his tee shot. Course officials survey the
action from under green and white umbrellas. The background is dominated
by an enormous oak and the stately Georgian clubhouse– both instantly
recognizable to fans of the Masters. Like the Kentucky Derby or the
Indianapolis 500, the Masters is a festival, a rite of Spring. And, it
is a serious, competitive sporting event. The tournament, like the
serigraph, affords the viewer verdant beauty and golfing excellence.
Neiman captures the pageantry as well as the athletic grace of the
course in Augusta.
