Cats in Art: Still Life With Cat (Desportes)

From my continuing weekly Sunday series of cats in art.  Having moved on from Stefano Zuffi's marvelous work, The Cat in ArtI am now using some ideas from Caroline Bugler's equally impressive book, The Cat/3500 Years of the Cat in Art.  

This'll be the second of several Alexandre-Francois Desportes paintings that will be featured here.

Image credit The Great Cat, Still Life With Cat,  Alexandre-Francois Desportes, no other information available, held by the Liverpool Walker Gallery.

This image comes from the same web site as last week, but unfortunately I have been unable to discern any more information about the date and size of the painting.  I just know that the kitty is being very other words, just being a cat.

[Gary note: With my Cats in Arts posts, I encourage you to scope out the art appreciation site Artsy (I have no financial interest in the site, I just like it), where you can explore many aspects of the world of art.  You'll certainly be entertained and enlightened!]
