Cat Art History: Andrew Wyeth

Andrew Newell Wyeth (July 12, 1917-January 16, 2009) was an American watercolorist and tempera painter, noted primarily for his realistic depictions of the buildings, fields, hills, and people of his immediate world.

He was one of the best-known U.S. artists of the middle 20th century.

And he included cats in his artwork.
Christina’s Bedroom (1947)
Cat Nap (1963)
Miss Olson (1952)

  1. Putting kitties in paintings is a very good thing.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  2. I enjoyed these! Hated to see Kitty outside the door though.

  3. Never heard of him. He was clearly very talented.

  4. I like 'Cat Nap'; you can really feel the sunshine in that picture. But 'Christina's Bedroom' looks a bit of a wreck...

  5. Lovely sketches!
    MIss Olson has a tender heart for her kitten:)
