Charles Blackman stands among Australias 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.

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. Here, in this deft drawing, a cat is affectionately upheld in a gesture cat lovers may know well. 

Provenanced from the Charles Blackman Foundation, this original drawing is signed “BLACKMAN” and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Charles Blackman Foundation. For cat lovers, collectors of Blackman and whimsical works behold this Purr-ty drawing!
