An amusing contrast can discerned in this lively scene by Henriëtte Ronner-Knip, renowned for her sentimental depictions of cats and dogs in domestic interiors. The kittens with their large eyes are curious and active, while their mother calmly observes the scene with disinterest. To draw the cats, the artist used a special glass cage in which the animals were posed with the help of cushions.
