St. Andrews 7th - "High (Out)"
A Limited Edition fine art print by Peter Munro. Image size 20'' x 16'' (50 x 40 cms).

This gouttelette limited edition print 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. 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 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 seventh hole is a par 4 and covers 359 yards from the Medal Tee. It is called “High” after the commanding position of the notoriously pitted and humped green, overlooking the Eden Estuary, and is the first hole in the famous St Andrews loop of four short par 4s and two par 3s.

Numbers 101-600 of this Limited Edition Gouttelette Print has been signed and numbered by the artist, printed with lightfast inks onto acid-free, calcium carbonate-buffered stock, mould-made from 100% cotton and sourced from environmentally-conscious paper suppliers.
