Cats in Art: Cat and Bird

My continuing series of Cats in Art.

During the period of the Spanish Civil War, Picasso created surrealistic paintings and etchings which served as propaganda against the Franco government. His painting entitled Cat and Bird symbolizes the cruelty of the laws governing nature.

Sometimes you just get rolled by a cat.
