The Philadelphia Museum of Art pres- ents The Art of Golf, an exhibition devoted to the sport’s artistic repre- sentation, now thru July 7. Installed in the museum’s British period rooms, the exhibition demonstrates the fascinating interrelationship of art and sport in the Victorian era. It features portraits, oil sketches, a historic
feather golf ball jacketed in bull’s hide, a silver trophy,
antique Scottish clubs of rams’ horn and colorful attire
that recalls Victorian life on the famed Old Course at
St. Andrews. The Golfers, a renowned 1847 painting
by Scottish artist Charles, Lees, is the exhibition’s
centerpiece. Widely regarded as the most important
golf painting in the world, it depicts a memorable
match played at St. Andrews in Scotland. “We are
delighted to be able to present this exhibition when
the attention of the world will be focused on the U.S.
Open, played on the occasion of its 113th anniversary on one of this country’s finest golf courses,”
Timothy Rub, the museum’s CEO and George D.
Widener Director, said. Exhibition hours are Tuesday
thru Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesdays until
8:45 p.m. For more information, visit the museum’s
