Reading Time: < 1 minutes

A Black and White Spaniel Pointing by George Stubbs that had been considered lost recently sold for £252,300 (about $300,702).

The painting was sold at Bonhams Old Master Paintings sale in London on July 6, according to a press release.

“Although Stubbs made his name as a painter of horses for the grandees of racing and horse breeding, he developed an equally lucrative career as a painter of dogs – often as commissions from the aristocratic owners of the horses,” explained Lisa Greaves, Bonhams Head of Old Master Paintings, in the release.
