Lot Information

Attractive painting, the reverse indicates it has been removed form an album as it has these tell-tale damage signs. Thomas Hodge (1827 ? 20 May 1907) was an English golf illustrator and painter. He became a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club at St Andrews in 1861 and via his thousands of golf illustrations of what were then the greatest golfers in the world he became known as 'the golf artist of St Andrews'. After his death, Hodge's work had for the most part fallen into obscurity and had been forgotten. Then, in 1983, a large cache of his watercolours was found in a battered and dusty red album and bought from an African antiques dealer peddling his wares at the Camden Lock Market. Many of the paintings were subsequently offered for sale at Sotheby's in 1985. It made perfect sense that Hodge's work was found collecting dust at the Camden Market ? his last known address was only two miles away at Quex Road, just off the Kilburn High Road.
