Six Studies of a Cat, Thomas Gainsborough (Sir), c. 1763 - c. 1769

black and white chalks, on brown paper,, h 332mm × w 459mm More details

Thomas Gainsborough was one of the most celebrated English portraitists of the 18th century. Cats and dogs also belonged to his repertory, because his sitters frequently wished to be portrayed with their favourite pet. These studies are exceptionally true-to-life and show the same cat in various positions: comfortably curled up, dozing and washing itself.
