Golfing Etching, McClymont, Fiery.
A fine golfing photogravure after the original painting dated 1898, "FIERY", by John I. McClymont. The subject in question is the famous Musselburgh caddie John Carey, affectionately known as 'Fiery'. The picture shows Carey stood on the green, flag in one hand and the golf clubs under his left arm (as was the usual method for the caddy to carry the clubs at that time). There are some bunkers to his right and in the background you can see a town with smoking chimneys.
Fiery was a professional caddie and was always dressed in his Balmoral bonnet. He was in great demand and caddied for many of the distinguished amateurs and professionals of his time, it is said Willie Park Junior never played in an important match, home or away, without the famous caddie by his side.

Image size: 10 inches wide by 7 ½ inches high.

John I. McClymont (1858-1934) was a British born painter and studied at Edinburgh School of Art. In around 1900 he emigrated to America.
