London Golf Club unveil portrait of former member Sir Henry Cooper
March 8, 2012

The South East's premier golfing destination, the London Golf Club has paid fitting tribute to former member and sporting icon, Sir Henry Cooper by unveiling a specially commissioned portrait of the man affectionately known as or 'Enry' during an intimate evening attended members, family and friends.

The magnificent portrait painted by renowned artist, André DeMoller will now proudly sit above the fireplace in the newly named 'Henry Cooper Room', formerly known as the 'Club Room.' This will hopefully serve as a reminder of just how special Sir Henry Cooper was to so many at the club.

André DeMoller is a name that is familiar to London Golf Club members, as several of his Picasso-esque style paintings currently hang in the club dining room. During the evening he spoke of the challenge of capturing the essence and soft manner of Sir Henry in his work. Friends and family were nonetheless delighted with the outcome.

Sir Henry's sons, Henry and John, were particularly overwhelmed by the portrait's likeness to their late father and the way in which DeMoller effectively captured the light-hearted nature of Sir Henry; a trait that will remain for so many London Golf Club members, privileged enough to meet the great man.
