It's no secret that Robert Fletcher is one of our favorite contemporary golf painters. We personally own his works, and we've championed his paintings as he's risen in stature in the golf world.

Offered here is an original oil painting of Francis Ouimet and Eddie Lowery at the 1913 US Open. At the 1913 US Open, the victory by Ouimet and his 10 year old caddie Lowery sent shockwaves throughout the golf industry. Golf was no longer a game dominated by the British. This oil painting on board depicts the iconic  image of Ouimet and Lowery. The oil on board painting measures 18" x 24" and is framed to an overall size of 25" x 31".
