Hi Nicky Craig here.I am going to the breed show with Kilbourne Warhol (aka Andy), I haven't been for quite a few years.I am going to bring my framed limited edition print of 'Bran'portrait of a deerhound by Gourlay Steell (Edingburgh 1879 ) to sell.There were a hundred prints run off the original picture in 2001.I think the original picture was auctioned at Crufts 2001. I think Crufts was postponed that year due to foot and mouth .The artist (1819-1894) succeeded Landseer as animal painter for Scotland for Queen Victoria.Bran was a deerhound whelped 1873 by Oscar out of Lufra that was bred by George Cupples and later owned by Dr Alexander (who commissioned the portrait).Thought I'd let people know in case they are interested.
