There are two means of  refuge from the miseries of life.  Music and cats.

Albert Schweitzer

It is rare when so little information is available about the artist and his works of art.  I do know that Clement Burlison was a nineteenth century British painter; his dates are from 1815-1899.  Fortunately, The White Cat and other paintings can be viewed online. In addition, the quote of humanitarian Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965),  is not sourced, but is popular on the internet.  Besides being praised for his medical mission in Africa as well as philosophical writings, Schweitzer was also an organist, specializing in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.
