This image is his second of this world famous golf course and tournament. It marks the first time he has consecutively returned to paint both a tournament and a course on which it is played. In addition to capturing the natural beauty and panoramic views of Pebble Beach, Neiman has also vividly depicted the various celebrity players participating in the tournament. Those who are putting out are scattered about the green with their caddies. On the far left is former President Gerald Ford in blue leaning on the club. To the right is Jack Nicklaus, who is in the process of putting. One the extreme left is Bob Hope, resplendent in red knickers and yellow sweater. And to his right is the artist, clad in a white jumpsuit, engrossed in the tournament and his sketching. On the right side in Tom Watson in red and actor Clint Eastwood in blue. The players are all situated mid-way along the fairway between the tee and the green. Also depicted is a portion of the colorful gallery and the extended ribbon of spectators which can be seen along the edge of the fairway. Throughout his career, LeRoy Neiman has painted not only the golfing greats but also the challenging courses on which they have played. However, it is Pebble Beach and the 18th hole which he considers to be one of the most magnificent and outstanding of all.
In this limited edition serigraph, LeRoy Neiman takes us sailing again, but this is not a leisurely cruise with rum, champagne and sunscreen. Instead, we are treated to a spectacle of one of man's oldest and greatest adventures, challenging the mighty sea.
