Click here to read MY RETRIEVER COLLECTION which tells the story of my friend Walt, who has owned Labs for more than 50 years. This print was originally in Walt's collection and I explain how I was able to purchase it.
This wonderful print appears on the cover of Thomas Quinn's book The Working Retrievers. Entitled "Black and Yellow," this print was released in 1986 in a limited edition of 950 copies. As you can see in the scans, this piece is signed on the print and then hand signed in pencil and hand numbered by the artist.
This is a HUGE framed and matted print which measures about 38 inches x 30 inches. We're keeping the shipping cost FREE, but believe me, a lot of the price is going to go to shipping. If we sell this to the West Coast, the cost is going to be about $100. The actual image size itself is 26 1/4 inches x a little over 18 inches. The frame appears to be maple in color.
I was thrilled to be able to get this print from Walt's collection. The signed and numbered editions of this print appear to be SOLD OUT and it seems that there is high demand for them from collectors. Someone else selling on says that they command retail prices of $1,650 when you can find them.
You can see that the names "Ray" and "Joe" are incorporated into the print. The two Labrador's official names are Ombaun's Razin Hell and Sonoma Joe.
Quinn says this about the two dogs: "As I rendered these explicitly different personalities in paint, I recall the 'contempt of color' factions between owners of black and owners of yellow Labrador retrievers. (Dogs never seen to notice this difference in each other.)
"Hunters favoring yellows are pleased to assert to 'believers-in-blacks' that blacks tend to flare away ducks toward the season's end. A retort usually insists that dark-colored, heat absorbing blacks are the only ones tough enough to brave the bitter cold and ice of late season.
"The man who owns Joe and Ray suffers no such prejudices. He has long since realized that—regardless of color—a good dog is to be treasured. He loves them both...after all, he has one of each!"
Now listing on , the DOGCRAZY COLLECTION. One of thelargest private collections of dog items in the US, including more that 5,000 books (many very old and rare), hundreds of figurines, many bronzes, hundreds of dog magazines, tons of ephemera and 18 boxes of paintings and prints. I began the collection in 1971 and it has been invaluable for the books and magazine articles I've written and edited. Keep watching for new items from the collection and check out our store.
