Cats wander throughout Charles Blackman’s work. Sometimes they are caught in the garden, on a tin roof or silhouetted against the night sky – enigmatic, noble and watchful. Art historians have speculated that this cat is reflective of Blackman’s penchant for solitude and experience of loneliness.

In ‘Leaping Cat’, Blackman’s cat sprawls across a meadow of flowers. Butterflies buzz about as she frolics in spring, awash in reverie. This is an image of utter joy and curiosity – a celebration of new life amid garden delights.

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.

For fans of Blackman, cats and avid gardeners, let ‘Leaping Cat’ bound into your collection.
