John Trickett (British b. 1953) Portrait of a Black Labrador Dog. Oil on Canvas. Signed and Framed.
A veritable aristocrat of a pooch! Almost certainly a gun dog. The UK’s The ‘Shooting Times’ declared Trickett’s “accurate portrayals of Black Labradors’ to be ‘some of the finest in the world”. As besotted dog owners ourselves (two common-as-muck rescues), we agree!
Gallery prices for a Trickett Labrador painting of this size run from £2,800 to £4,000.

Born in Sheffield, John Trickett attended Winteringham Grammar, and, whilst his artistic ability was recognised, it was Trickett’s dream to play professional football. This he went on to do, at first playing association football with Grimsby Town, and signing his first professional contract with Torquay United.
These being the days of modest remuneration for footballers, Trickett moved on, spending some time as an accountant, and as a fork-lift truck-driver on his return to Grimsby. However, it was during his years in Torquay, in his early twenties, that Trickett started painting portraits, landscapes, and seascapes.
The artist was born.
With a growing portfolio, John Trickett contacted Sally Mitchell, an independent art publisher, who immediately recognised an important talent.
John Trickett is now celebrated as one of the most important dog painters of our time, producing beautifully depicted pictures of Pointers, Springers, Border Collies, Retrievers and Labradors.
The ‘Shooting Times’ declared Trickett’s “accurate portrayals of Black Labradors’ to be ‘some of the finest in the world” - across which Trickett’s paintings can be found throughout Europe, America, Australia, and Japan.
