Such a handsome booboo kitty cat in this portrait. This pastel was drawn on Velour paper April 1981. Signed front lower left, Fritzi Klopfenstein. Titled on the verso, ‘Blue Cream Persian.’ I see no water damage, holes or tears on this picture. The drawing measures 9 by 12 inches tall. In its original silver and black wood frame it measures 11 1/4 inches wide and 14 1/2 inches tall. Has some dents in silver areas around frame. The artist label is attached to the back. Fritzi was a dedicated naturalist and nationally recognized as a nature and wildlife artist. In 1950, she received a degree in Museum Science.
