EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from 1939 takes us back in time to the golden era of rail travel. The poster, created by Arthur C Michael for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER), showcases the picturesque town of St Andrews in Fife as a premier destination for golf enthusiasts. With its stunning depiction of two golfers accompanied by their caddies against the backdrop of West Sands, this artwork beautifully captures the essence and allure of this historic Scottish town. Measuring an impressive 1016 mm x 1270 mm, this poster is a testament to Michael's artistic talent and attention to detail. Known primarily for his watercolor and bodycolor works, he seamlessly brings to life every element within this composition – from the vibrant green fairways to the intricate costumes worn by these avid sportsmen. Beyond his contributions to LNER's promotional materials, Michael's artistic prowess extended into illustrating books and periodicals. His ability to capture not only landscapes but also human subjects with such precision makes him a true master of his craft. As we gaze upon this remarkable print, we are transported back in time; feeling both inspired by St Andrews' rich history as well as compelled to embark on our own journey there. This image serves as a timeless reminder that some destinations hold an enduring charm that transcends generations – just like the royal and ancient game itself.
