Eric Ward, Rosie

Eric Ward, Rosie

We almost couldn’t part with this beautiful painting of ‘Rosie’ the calico cat as it’s just such a charming piece.

It’s by Eric Ward (1945-) who was born in Cornwall and studied at the St Ives School of Art. Many of his works depict everyday scenes in an impressionistic manner with cat paintings being quite a rarity.

Perhaps Rosie was his own? Or maybe a commission from a nearby friend?
