This charming late 19th-century portrait of a majestic moggy elevates its subject to higher ground. It captures the cat in its finest hour as if dressed in a dapper suit prior to a regal ball.

Look at those eyes, full of light and life.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
