From my continuing weekly Sunday series of cats in art. Having moved on from Stefano Zuffi's marvelous work, The Cat in Art, I 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 opportunistic...in 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!]
