"I'm a great admirer of the movement of golf. I met Jack Nicklaus and decided for the first time to paint people - in my naive, sort of way. The original painting was finished for my show at Square One Gallery, Kings Road London. So as you complete this piece, contemplate as I did, how the swing of life is all about feeling the energy in what we do. And nothing could be more poignant than the energy in this piece." Cindy Lass xx.
This striking design has been created from an original painting of Jack Nicklaus, widely regarded as the greatest golfer of all time, winning a record 18 career major championships. Cindy Lass created the piece as a tribute to one of the greatest golfing legends of all time.
