This commemorative poster was created for the National Sporting Library & Museum’s 7th Annual Polo Classic and was sponsored by TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.©2017 Gregory R. Montgomery The 33 x 22-inch poster titled The Pinnacles was created for the National Sporting Library & Museum’s (NSLM) 7th Annual Polo Classic held at Great Meadow, The Plains, Virginia, on September 10, 2017. Designed by artist Greg Montgomery, the vibrant image offers a sweeping view from pavilion-side over the field of play to the tailgaters beyond. Proceeds benefit NSLM. Montgomery applies his bold and colorful graphic style to the wide range of scenery one might encounter at an equestrian event, whether a polo match or a horse race. A native of Washington, DC, he studied painting and lithography at the University of New Mexico and serigraphy at the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY. Forty-two of his works have appeared on the front covers of Dick Francis crime novel series set in English horse racing circles which were re-published by Berkley Press, a subsidiary of Penguin Publishing, beginning in 2004. Montgomery is also known for the long-running annual poster series he began creating for the Travers Stakes in Saratoga in 1986.
