Amazing. According to The Pooch Times, this painting, “A Kleberg Dog” sold for more than five times its low estimate of $40,000. The painting sold at a Christie’s art auction in New York on March 3, 2011  for $218,500.

According to The Pooch Times “Wyeth said he painted the circle around Kleberg’s eye in the 1980’s after the pooch got too close to his easel”.  According to Christie’s, Jamie Wyeth’s wife, Phyllis, was given the dog by Robert Kleberg of the King Rach in Texas when he passed away. Mrs. Wyeth named the dog Kleberg in memory of her friend.
Neat story, eh?
