Description

An early 20th-century portrait of a beautiful Persian cat by German-Hungarian painter, Arthur Heyer (1872-1931).

Heyer was a respected painter of animal portraits and particularly well known for his fascination with white cats. Throughout his career, he painted so many white felines that his peers dubbed him ‘Cat’ Heyer.

This particular lady was probably painted as a commission during his time in Budapest. It’s easy to imagine that he was the ‘go-to guy’ if you had a Persian or Angora.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a swept foliate frame with pierced ornamentation.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 23½” x 19½” / 60cm x 50cm
Year of creation: c.1910
