Original ink drawing on paper by Norman Lindsay
Every cat owner knows that although some cats might look similar, no two cats are exactly the same. They are all individuals with unique personalities and quirks.
Famous Australian artist Norman Lindsay was also a cat owner and a cat person. He loved cats and for many years had a large brood of cats at his home at Springwood in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales – Norman’s daughter Jane tallied as many as thirty-five at one time! Thus he had the opportunity to study cats and their personalities over a long period of time. In his spare time Norman delighted in drawing his cats in various positions – posing, dozing, playing with feathers, defending themselves against fowls, dogs and children or simply curled into soft, cuddly balls of fur.
Norman’s studies of cats during his long life convinced him that cats embody many human qualities. He expanded on this theme, endowing his cats with human characteristics.
