Linda Hartough a Featured Artist in First Issue of Catalogue 18
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Linda Hartough, a world-renowned golf-landscape artist (www.hartough.com) and a 2017 inductee into the Lowcountry Golf Hall of Fame, is featured in the first edition of Catalogue 18, an annual magazine highlighting the game’s most beautiful courses and landscapes as captured by its most talented artists and photographers.
“It is an honor to have my art included in this notable and beautifully presented publication,” Hartough said. “To be part of the launch issue is especially exciting.”
A luxury print catalogue, Catalogue 18 is golf’s first subscription art magazine. It features exceptional images of select golf courses around the world, in addition to artist biographies and editorial descriptions of the art.
Hartough’s works in the publication include images of her original paintings of the 3rd Hole at Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the 9th Hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links, in Pebble Beach, Calif.; the 18th green and clubhouse at Augusta National Golf Club, in Augusta, Ga.; and, at the Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland, a backward glance to the 1st and 18th Holes, with the Royal & Ancient clubhouse in the background.
“This project wouldn’t exist without high-profile contributors like Linda Hartough,” said Guy Nicholson, editor and publisher of Catalogue 18. “Her name is golden and her work is unmistakable; she lends instant credibility to any publication she appears in.
“Linda’s painting of the 3rd Hole at Spyglass Hill is one of my favorites in the entire 300-page launch issue,” Nicholson continued. “The level of detail is incredible.
“It makes me want to pack my clubs and book a trip today.”
Catalogue 18 is a sumptuous compendium of photographs, paintings, illustrations, tours, articles and portfolios by two dozen award-winning photographers and artists. For more information, see catalogue18.com.
About Linda Hartough
A confirmed artist since childhood, early in her career Hartough painted landscapes, portraits and horses. In 1984, Augusta National Golf Club commissioned her to paint its famous 13th hole, an event which propelled Hartough toward specialization as a golf-landscape painter. Since then, her work has achieved a distinguished status, displayed in the permanent collections of such legendary clubs as Augusta National, Laurel Valley, Pinehurst and Pine Valley, as well as in the personal collections of such golf notables as Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd and Rees Jones. Her work is included in the collections of the USGA Museum, in Far Hills, New Jersey, and the Morris Museum of Art, in Augusta, Georgia.
Known for extraordinary attention to detail in her recreation of some of golf’s most beautiful holes, Hartough imbues her paintings with admiration for the scenery’s natural beauty and respect for the game’s history and tradition, elements which seem to emerge from the canvas.
Hartough’s paintings of various holes at Augusta National Golf Club are prized by collectors the world over. In addition, Hartough painted the first of her U.S. Open series in 1990 – commissioned by the U.S. Golf Association – a 25-year series she completed in 2014, as well as her official British Open Championship series, from 1990-1999.
Hartough has been honored with the Golf Digest Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a Founding Trustee of the Academy of Golf Art, a professional society of golf artists established in 2004 to create an awareness and appreciation of golf art as a valuable segment of fine art.
