    Description

    1890's "The Drive" Golf Print by Charles E. Brock. Hand-colored engraving is the famous work of Charles Edmond Brock, best known as the illustrator for some of the greatest literature of his his English homeland, providing artwork for such esteemed authors as Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Jonathan Swift. He's believed to have painted only three golf works in his life, with one of the originals recently selling at auction for nearly $80,000. This print is derived from another, likely done for the same commission.

    We suspect that the signature of Brock is joined by that of fellow English illustrator Frank Palou because the latter applied the masterful hand-coloring of the image, though this is only supposition. The print measures approximately 8x10" including the signed white borders, and is matted and framed to an elegant 14x16". Fine condition.
