This gouttelette limited edition print, St Andrews 1st, comes from a series of 19 paintings by Peter Munro. Numbers 101-600 in each edition are published as gouttelettes on paper to the image size specified. Numbers 1-100 of each edition are published to the exact specifications of each individual collector, and therefore in any size and on a variety of media, including on both paper and canvas. Any gouttelette edition on canvas is published with light-fast inks to BS1006 standard onto fine archival-quality canvas, coated with acid-free priming for permanent artwork reproduction. When published, each edition is then hand-sorted and individually checked for quality by the printer.
The print is supplied with a certificate which is numbered, and then signed by the artist, in approval of the edition. Golf is now played in almost every country but there is no doubt that the ‘Home of Golf’ is at St Andrews. A crude form of the sport was played on the site as early as the mid 1400s and organised golf from 1754, when twenty-two “Noblemen and Gentlemen” formed the Society of St Andrews Golfers, which became the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in 1834 which now governs the laws of golf everywhere except in the USA. There are several courses on the links at St Andrews but the most famous is undoubtedly The Old Course, which hosted the British Open for the 27th time in 2005.
The Old Course is notorious for its striking physical features, including its huge double greens, where the outward and inward holes both make use of the same putting surface, and its 112 bunkers, amongst them some of the most famous in golf. The first hole is a par 4 and covers 370 yards from the Medal Tee. It is called “Burn”, after the Swilcan Burn which guards the front edge of the green.
Each print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. The certificate is numbered to match the print.
