Royal and Ancient (St. Andrews 1798).
Royal and Ancient (St. Andrews 1798).
Frank Paton. [signed in pencil].
Published by Leggatt Bros, 62 Cheapside, London. 1894.
Etching, signed by the artist. 200 x 265mm (8 x 10½").
The green at St. Andrews with a golfer about to putt. The scene is surrounded by vignettes satirising golfing terms. Frank Paton (1856-1909) was a successful artist during his lifetime and could even count Queen Victoria as an admirer of his work. He is perhaps most widely known for his series of etched Christmas cards published annually by Edward Ernest Leggatt from 1880 until Paton's death in 1909. They were intended to be a cut above the average Christmas card and sold for half a guinea each. Their format became quite formulaic over the years. A central subject reflecting the title of the print was usually complemented by a series of often humorous sketches around its border. A number of the prints would be sent from the printers to be signed in pencil by Paton.
