    Description

    1965 Bobby Jones "1930 Grand Slam" Original Artwork by Dom Lupo. Bobby Jones' last year as a professional golfer, in which he captured the 1930 Grand Slam and became the only golfer in history to win the pre-Masters Grand Slam in the same calendar year, is often referred to as the greatest year in golf.

    The original Dom Lupo painting offered here captures Jones at the most critical juncture of his 1930 Grand Slam effort, namely, the moment before he (and the most famous putter in history, Calamity Jane) sunk a forty-foot put on the seventy-second and final hole of the U.S. Open at Interlachen Country Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota to win the tournament. The work first appeared in the August 1965 issue of Golf magazine ("Grand Slam Commemorative Issue") as part of "A Grand Slam Portfolio" which consisted of "Four Original Paintings in Full Color by Dom Lupo." Later, the work was included in a set a four prints which was offered through the magazine. The watercolor is signed by the artist and matted and framed to the dimensions of 19.5x23.5" (12.25x17" visible in frame). A copy of the Golf magazine referenced above is also included in this lot.

    Master illustrator Dom Lupo served as Golf Magazine's leading illustrator for twenty-five years and his artwork graces more than thirty golf books, as well as the walls of World Golf Hall of Fame. In 2003, Lupo lost most of his original paintings in a San Diego cedar fire. As such, his original artwork exists in a very limited supply.
