Michael Brown, 'Open Golf Championship' Photogravure.
A very large framed and impressive golfing photogravure 'Open Golf Championship, St. Andrews 1895', although untitled. This is a wonderful large scale study of all the top golfers of the later nineteenth century assembled on the course at St Andrews, the Clubhouse in the background, watching J H Taylor about to play over the Swilken Burn to the first green. Portrayed watching are over 60 top golfers of the day, including Tom Morris, John Ball, Harold Hilton, James Braid and Harry Vardon. The picture is taken from the original painting by Michael Brown and is engraved by R. Paulussen, Vienna.
There is a copy of the key that identifies all the golfing personalities.

Image size: 27½ inches wide by 15½ inches high.
(James) Michael Brown (1843-1947) is very well known for his commissioned series of golf scenes and personalities for the Life Association of Scotland that were produced each year between 1885-1916.
