The majority of the artwork presented here is brought to you by the courtesy of my very good friend, Werner Preugschat. These old prints were intended to be used in my book, MASTIFF, ARISTOCRATIC GUARDIAN however, there just wasn't enough room, or they would not print well enough to justify including them.
This drawing has a real history. It was published in 'Rundschau fur Jagd und Hundesport', Nr. 10, October 30, 1934. It is titled "Gladiator" (circa 1829). The engraving was owned by Friedrich Scheirmann (1886-1958) who was co-founder of the German "allgemeiner Deutscher Bordeauxdoggen Klub." The engraving was destroyed during the bombing of Germany. This was supplied by Herr Scheirmann's widow through the kindness of Werner Preugschat.
