Ch Wimpole Peter
Signed and dated 1901
Oil on canvas 24 x 29 ins
Ch Wimpole Peter is one of six paintings Henry Reginald Cooke commissioned of his Flat Coated Retrievers from Maud Earl. Peter was bred by F Keen and was by Black Drake, a dog bred and owned by Harding Cox, and a grandson of Ch Dareth, considered to be 'the partriarch of all present day Flat Coats'. Peter's great-granddaughter, Culham Lassie, a golden Flat Coated Retriever, was the grand-dam of the Golden Retriever, Dual Ch Balcombe Boy, bred by Viscount Harcourt, and an influential sire who is probably behind all today's Golden Retriever titleholders.
