I am pleased to offer you the first of 4 wonderful original anthropomorphic cat illustrations I have recently purchased. We have a male cat dressed formally in a top hat and tails on a rooftop, looking as though he is about to propose to his feline friend. She gazes at him as if in a most pleasant trance. The drawing is pen with ink wash and gouache highlights. The work was probably done as a children's story book illustration c. 1890 - 1910, but reframed and backed in the 1940's/50's. Signed lower right, 'E. Docker', for Edward Alexander Docker, a listed British artist born in 1878 and died in 1932 (his output seems to cease around 1910). A charming, petite work cat lovers will adore !

Condition : Some spots of foxing in the lower left quadrant. Otherwise ready to hang.

Size : Image : 6" (15.24 cm) Tall // 4" (10.16 cm) Wide ---- Overall : 8" (20.32 cm) Tall // 6" (15.24 cm) Wide
