Image credit ABC Gallery, here [click to enlarge]. The Cat's Paw, Sir Edwin Landseer, 1824, oil on canvas, 32" x 29", private collection.
This painting, marked by subtle cruelty... shows a monkey trying to burn the cat's paw by holding it over a brazier. Along with the hapless protagonist, the work includes other cats, observing the situation with interest and concern.
The morals of the story: Monkeys can be a**holes. Plus cats and monkeys don't mix. Better stick with the kitties.
