Arts Everyday Living: Best Friends & Companions–Cats and Dogs in Art, Up Close & Personal

Wilhelm Grabhein, Portrait of a Cat, 1900, oil on paperboard, Private Collection

 

French artist Carolus Duran (1837-1917) was an insightful portraitist not only of human subjects but of Chinois the dog below.  I could only find the dates of Wilhelm Grabhein (1859-1930) who has portrayed the soulful cat above.
