Let's start a weekly Sunday post, shall we, for the Cats in Art theme?
Cats, by Francisco Domingo Marques, image credit here. This site also comments:
I do not know when it was painted and the answer is not available to me despite a decent search. The artist was Spanish and he lived 1842-1920. Once again this is the era of the beginning of the cat fancy in England in the mid late 1800s.
