Sir Edwin Landseer

Sir Edwin Landseer is the artist credited with making a powerful influence on the Newfoundland breed. Although it has been said that he painted the white-and-blacks because their coloring made a brighter picture, he is honored by having that variety named the Landseer Newfoundland. His paintings not only helped popularize the breed, but created a fashion in that time for the white-and-blacks.
