In addition, there are also a total of 15 prints, 5 lots with 3 prints each, from the “Ruger 21 North Americans” series, a remarkable collection showcasing the talents of 12 top wildlife artists. This lithograph series was created by Wolfe Publishing in partnership with Sturm Ruger Company following the commissioning of 42 original paintings. These artists included such world-renowned names as Leon Parson, Lee Cable, Tom and Greg Beecham, Gary Swanson, and Bob Kuhn. Other artists include, Michael Sieve, Dave Wade, Paul Bosman, Larry Wolfe, Gary Moss and Dan Metz. With two portrayals of each North American big game animal, the images in the paintings were engraved on each side of a one-of-a kind, custom single-shot rifle. Following the manufacture of the guns, the paintings were then used to produce a series of signed, limited edition lithographs of 950 general edition and 95 Artist Proofs. Each and every print in these auction lots are hand numbered with the same edition, “198 / 950”.
Not only will these make great gifts, but they are fantastic pieces you will be proud to display in your home, cabin, or lodge! It’s ok to buy yourself a gift…we won’t tell!
