Nationally recognized contemporary impressionist artist David Lussier of Connecticut captured the poetry and majesty of Oakmont in the official commemorative painting for the 116th US Open Golf championship. Commissioned by the USGA, the 28-inch by 42-inch oil painting titled “The eighteenth hole at Oakmont,” shows the eighteenth hole and the historic Oakmont Country Club raked by late afternoon light. The painting is owned by the USGA will be part of the museum’s private collection. 

At 5 p.m., the eighteenth hole was bathed in this beautiful afternoon light, the long shadows felt absolutely perfect and the combination of light and shadow really drew me in. The clubhouse was also being bathed in this perfect light and the moving clouds just added to the overall composition.”

The original oil painting is printed in a limited edition of 250 paper giclée prints, 150 small canvas giclée prints and 150 large canvas giclée prints. Each fine art paper print is signed and numbered by the artist. Each canvas print includes Lussier's hand painted signature. The limited edition prints are produced by David Lussier Gallery of Fine Art.

I caught something very personal and special in the painting. It feels like a type of portrait.
