About "Clubhouse at Old St. Andrews"
No red-blooded golfer's
education is complete until he has played Old St. Andrew's with its crumbling
fairways, hidden hazzards, gigantic greens, sharp burrows, and twisting
contours. The weather is raw and the winds treacherous. It's said one can buck
the wind all the way to the ninth hole, and then turn around and face it all
the way back. The hallowed grounds of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St.
Andrew's provide a fitting subject for LeRoy Neiman's latest serigraph. The
artist's sweeping treatment provides a grand view of both the 18th green and
the first tee, the venerable clubhouse, and the North Sea, all under the
scowling Scottish sky. The devilish course is named for the first disciple to
follow Christ, and has remained essentially unchanged since its founding in
1754. Neiman has depicted the clubhouse, built in 1840, in the brilliant
afterglow of an August evening. The sun sets late this far North, and its
fading rays have painted the clubhouse in rich warm shades of pink, orange, and
yellow which contrast cleanly with the cool, soothing greens below. Golfers,
caddies and spectators share the scene with a handful of wayward crows. Just in
front of the clubhouse stand three Scottish guards, resplendent in their kilts,
plaids, and tall, feathery, black headpieces know as busbys.
