Rare Original Painting That Inspired Over 4 Million in Limited Edition Print Sales Available for First Time Ever

Collectors Buy Out Millions in Bev Doolittle Art

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  The world record for a limited edition art print, was Sacred Ground by Bev Doolittle which sold all 69,996 copies that were produced and sold at the original retail price of $265.00 each, for a total of over 18 Million dollars. Those prints are worth even more today.

The original acrylic painting of Beyond Negotiations by the extremely popular artist Bev Doolittle is available for the first time ever.

This magnificent painting was made into limited edition prints that sold out at the publisher very quickly. Over 4 Million dollars in prints of Beyond Negotiations were sold. 350 Museum Edition Canvases were produced for $2,950 each and 3,750 Limited Edition Canvases were produced for $795 each, and all of them were purchased.

Many Bev Doolittle sold out limited editions have skyrocketed in value over time. Her painting "Bugged Bear" for example, which was originally issued as a limited edition print with a price of $85, sold out, and today sells in the range of $7,000-$8,000 each on the secondary market.

Nearly all of Bev's prints have been sell-outs and five books of her art have been released. Her first, The Art of Bev Doolittle, is truly a phenomenon, having sold over half-million copies of its hardback edition.

Bev is known for her paintings of wildlife and Native Americans, and also for her camouflage art, as she hides images within many of her paintings, adding to the visual experience.

The original of Beyond Negotiations is an impressive 72" by 36" acrylic painting that took a year of work with the incredible detail of each horse and Native American, as they ride into battle after coming to the conclusion that the situation was beyond negotiations. It is Bev's largest acrylic painting ever.

Bev can be seen discussing this extraordinary painting in the video featured at www.bnr-art.com/doolitt.

The original of Beyond Negotiations is available through B & R Art Gallery in picturesque Canyon Country, California. B & R Art Gallery has hosted many shows for Bev Doolittle and has the largest collection of Bev Doolittle originals available in the world.

Handwritten notes by Bev Doolittle about the painting and the symbols painted on the horses are available from the gallery, and can be viewed on the Doolittle exhibit on their website at www.bnr-art.com.
