Resch’s Long Bottle Pilsener. Now For The Best Round Of All [Golf]

c1940s. Oil on canvas, and colour lithograph poster, signed lower right, 96 x 71.5cm (painting), 99.5 x 76.cm (poster). Slight soiling. Original frame.

This oil painting was commissioned by Resch’s Brewery to be reproduced as a poster for their pubs.

It is extremely rare to have both the original artwork and the poster together. This image is considered to be the icon of Australian golf from the post-war period in Australia.

Alan Douglas Baker trained at the J.S. Watkins Art School before establishing a reputation as an artist of portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Like fellow artist Henry Hanke, he had a second career producing pub paintings and posters by Tooth & Co. Baker’s work is held in AGNSW, NGA and other public collections.
