Cats in Art: The Terrasse Family

My continuing Sunday series on Cats in Art.

Image and text credit here.  [1902-03, Pierre Bonnard, The Terrasse Family, oil on canvas]

Bonnard is better known for his paintings, some of which resemble the works of the Impressionists although there are many dissimilarities. He was one of the few painters at the turn of the century to include cats in his work.

In this detail from The Terrasse Family, the family cat enjoys a social afternoon with his humans.

Actually, the humans are enjoying a social afternoon entertaining their cat.
