Notes

A charming original drawing by Louis Wain (1860-1939), "the man who drew cats". This is a finely executed example of the anthropomorphic style for which he was famous, with a distinctly satisfied looking cat at her toilet, captioned below: "There is some comfort in feeling at home".
A label to the rear of the frame notes that this drawing was included in two exhibitions by Chris Beetles Limited.
