In Charles Blackman’s whimsical ‘Trumpeters’, a girl and cat form a marching band. The girl leads, dancing through the city, her cat on hind legs in tow. The image is playfully reticent of Angels Blowing Trumpets – a classical motif denoting Judgement Day and entry into heaven. 

Blackman is among Australia’s favourite artists, known in part for his images of girls and cats. A true romantic, his work is poetry in form – in equal parts playful and meaningful. For collectors of Blackman, this rare etching from the archives of the publisher, signed by the artist, will make you sing.
