  2. 2. 14MASTER’S MARGARITASauza Silver Tequila, Lavender, Blackberries, LimeOld Man Tracy of Tracy and Tracy, 1926 Humor is integral to the game of golf—anyone who has played it knows that elements of the absurd and ridiculous are, indeed, “par for the course”—and humorists often use it as a subject, parodying the game that Mark Twain once called “a good walk spoiled.” The subject of golf was a perfect match for Norman Rockwell, whose style is distinguished by great attention to detail and a love of the anecdotal vignette. This wonderful piece combines his signature sense of humor with the American love for the game of golf.Norman Rockwell (American, 1894-1978), Old Man Tracy ofTracy and Tracy, 1926, oil on canvas, 22 x 36 inches.
