Item # 13116

Circa 1920

24½″ high by 28″ wide framed

This is a charming painting of a slumbering black cat. He is curled out happily asleep on the kitchen table and brightly colored cloth.

The water color is brightly colored with most of the color coming from the very detailed fabric and a watercolor that hangs on the wall of sailing boats. It is in the bottom right corner of this artwork where the artist has signed his work. The watercolor has been reframed at some point with a double archival mat of pale cream and black filet. The painting is in excellent condition and measures 17″ high by 20½″ wide unframed.

The gold frame has some losses of gold leaf but still looks good. This is a happy painting that has a calming effect that makes me want a nap.

This painting is an estate purchase from the granddaughter of the original owner who asked his friend in Italy to paint it to his order of the family cat. Said cat was the fattest member of the family, so the story is told to me.

The cost of shipping in the US would be about $28.00 by Fed Ex Ground. Because of its’ larger size the farther East you go it gets more expensive to ship. Sorry I have no control over shipping costs.
