The title & origin of this work
was not known when I first was made aware of it.
The current owner also possesses a print of
Andrews Caddy and it is thought the two
works are closely related. If you also compare
Man with Pipe I believe you'll recognize
this may be the same subject.
"I have a print I think may be
of L.C. Earle work. Could you please help
identify this work of Art? It is mounted and is
approx 22" x 16" viewed area. Another print I
have is of St. Andrews Caddy.
The picture is mounted exactly
like the St. Andrews Caddie. Similar frame the
back paper is gone the cardboard is visible. I
took the cardboard and removed it to look for
information signature or any identification. I
was unable to find anything. The style is almost
exact, look at the golf hat. It resembles the
other print. Any idea how I can find out more

Well Ed, we have made an
identification. The title is "Bogey Man."
