The White Cat. 1894. Oil on canvas.
Musee D'Orsay, Paris, France
Pierre Bonnard, like all Impressionists,
made a lot of cat pictures, so his appearance in Catland's select gallery
was unavoidable. What made me take the final step towards converting potential
to reality was this: there was an exhibition of Bonnard's art at the local
gallery. This all seems very nice, inspiring and poetic...but... I didn't
go. My supporting staff didn't take me there, even though they knew perfectly
about my love of art, so I was forced to read about Bonnard in a book.
While doing that I stumbled onto these four pictures.
All four of them are good. My favourite
is "The Cat" because it shows cat nature perfectly: just look at those
narrowed eyes and straight back!
