COUNTRY GENTLEMAN was an agricultural magazine founded in 1831 in Rochester, New York. In 1911 the magazine began to address the business side of farming which was largely ignored by the agricultural magazines of the time. At 19, artist William Rannells painted a picture of a girl with a collie. He realized the dog looked better without the human figure so he painted the dog alone and sold it for $40. This became the cover of COUNTRY GENTLEMAN – June 1, 1912 and started Rannells artistic career.
