HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (June 8, 2020) – Linda Hartough Golf Landscapes (www.hartough.com), is featured in the 2020 issue of Catalogue 18, an annual magazine highlighting the game’s most beautiful golf courses and landscapes as captured by its most talented artists and photographers. Hartough also was featured in the 1st issue, published last year.
“Linda’s feature on Pebble Beach is a highlight of the 2nd issue,” said Guy Nicholson, publisher and editor of Catalogue 18. “Her distinctive style and long relationship with one of golf’s best-known courses made it a perfect fit.”
“Linda’s work always shines in Catalogue 18’s large, luxury print format.”
Catalogue 18 is golf’s first subscription art magazine. It features exceptional images of select golf courses around the world, in addition to artist biographies and editorial descriptions of the art.
“I am proud to be represented in this esteemed magazine again this year,” Hartough said. “It is a highly-respected publication, and it’s an honor to have my work within its pages.”
Hartough’s works in the publication include, in “The Front,” Pebble Beach images of the 5th, 7th, 8th, 17th and 18th Holes; and in “The Back,” paintings of the 17th Hole at Seminole, the 17th Hole at Old Tabby Links, the 17th Hole at Royal Dornach and the 1st Hole at Annandale.
“This project wouldn’t exist without high-profile contributors like Linda Hartough,” said Guy Nicholson, editor and publisher of Catalogue 18. “Her name is golden and her work is unmistakable; she lends instant credibility to any publication she appears in.”
Catalogue 18 is a sumptuous compendium of photographs, paintings, illustrations, tours, articles and portfolios by two dozen award-winning photographers and artists. For information or to order a copy, see www.catalogue18.com.
About Linda Hartough
Linda Hartough is a world-renowned golf-landscape artist. Her work is displayed in the permanent collections of such legendary clubs as Augusta National, Laurel Valley, Pinehurst and Pine Valley; in the personal collections of such golf notables as Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd and Rees Jones; and in the collections of the USGA Museum, in Far Hills, New Jersey, and the Morris Museum of Art, in Augusta, Georgia.
Known for extraordinary attention to detail in her recreation of some of golf’s most beautiful holes, Hartough imbues her paintings with admiration for the scenery’s natural beauty and respect for the game’s history and tradition, elements which seem to emerge from the canvas.
Hartough’s paintings of various holes at Augusta National Golf Club are prized by collectors the world over. In addition, Hartough painted the first of her U.S. Open series in 1990, commissioned by the U.S. Golf Association – a 25-year series she completed in 2014, as well as her British Open Championship series, from 1990-1999.
A confirmed artist since childhood, early in her career Hartough painted landscapes, portraits and horses. In 1984, Augusta National Golf Club commissioned her to paint its famous 13th hole, an event which propelled Hartough toward specialization as a golf-landscape painter.
Hartough, a 2017 inductee into the Lowcountry Golf Hall of Fame, has been honored with the Golf Digest Lifetime Achievement Award. She is a Founding Trustee of the Academy of Golf Art, a professional society of golf artists established in 2004 to create an awareness and appreciation of golf art as a valuable segment of fine art.
