Catch Up With Linda Hartough
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (May 14, 2020) – Linda Hartough Golf Landscapes (hartough.com) announces the introduction of its newly-designed website. While maintaining the features long appreciated by both collectors of Linda Hartough’s work and everyone who admires golf art as a fine-art genre, the enhanced site now includes updated elements that refine the user experience and highlight the beauty of the paintings by this world-renowned golf-landscape artist.
“The new website gives the visitor a feeling of strolling into a gallery to spend time enjoying the art,” Hartough said. “The depictions and organization of the paintings encourage viewers to identify places they’ve played and courses they long to play, not to mention finding prints or paintings they may already own and those they’d like to give as gifts to others.”
The updated site provides multiple options for purchased art, such as custom framing, sizing and texture; gallery wrapped prints; and signing by the artist. In the “Studio” section, the “Art Show” tab allows viewers to scan works at their leisure, and the “Work in Progress” portion offers a fascinating perspective into the progress of certain paintings as they took shape under the artist’s brush.
“We invite everyone who loves golf to explore the new site,” said Hartough. “It’s the next-best thing to being on the golf course.”
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.
And for our local fans, Linda is from Louisville and a graduate of Southern High School!
