Landseer Newfoundlands:

Black and white Newfoundlands are known as Landseers. They were named after Sir Edwin Henry Landseer, ( 1802- 1873), an English painter, well known for his paintings of animals.

He is best known by Newfoundland fanciers for his 1838 painting, The Distinguished Member of the Humane Society, and his 1856 painting  Saved; both depicting the black and white Newfoundland, today, known as the Landseer.

The Canadian Kennel and the American Kennel club consider the Landseer to be a black-and-white colour variant of the black Newfoundland dog but in some European countries the Landseer is recognized as a separate breed.
