ABOUT “THE PINNACLES” Artist Greg Montgomery had a very definite vision of what he wanted to do when commissioned to create this year’s Polo Classic artwork: “With this, our second Polo Classic poster, we wanted to showcase the world-class players in close-up polo action played out before a background of handsome patrons under the pinnacles of the great viewing pavilion. The title of this piece, ‘The Pinnacles,’ came easily," observed artist Greg Montgomery, “the pinnacles of the tent, the most successful point, culmination — of attendees, players, ponies and place.” Mark Lowham, CEO and Managing Partner of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty said this about “The Pinnacles”: “We are honored to be the sponsor of this year’s Polo Classic poster. Greg’s art reflects both the energetic play on the field and the elegant experience of the audience along the boards. Sotheby’s International Realty is delighted by the opportunity to share in this wonderful event supporting NSLM.” ML
