Charles Blackman stands among Australia's most beloved and collectable artists. With a career as distinct as it is diverse, his work is consistently informed by a sense of childlike wonder.

In ‘Cat’s Claws’, Blackman revisits one of his favourite motifs - the feline. With its own rich history, the cat has become a catchall for the elusive, sleek and mischievous. A domestic compatriot and the witch’s familiar, the cat slinks through popular culture, unattainable yet utterly beguiling. In this portrait, she fills the frame, slanted eyes suspicious and claws nestled under her chin. She knows what you’re thinking.

Blackman is represented in all state collections and has transcended art world notoriety to become an icon of Australian culture. For cat lovers and fans of Blackman, this minimal yet striking work is an ideal catch. Plus, it’s fur-free.
