‘Cat nap’ by Kay McDonagh | Contemporary Print

Devonshire painter/printmaker Kay McDonagh has a very distinctive style, her animal portraits always drawing a single subject into close focus with a plain background, and always incorporating a sense of fun. This rare and no longer published open edition print featuring a sleepy white-chested tabby is taken from her original engraving and has been produced to a very high standard by contemporary art publishers The Art Group, with the centre of the paper impressed to form a border around the image and emulate the plate mark of the original hand-pressing process.

This print has been professionally mounted with quality pH neutral materials and is ready to give as a gift or place into your choice of 8″ x 10″ frame. As with all prints from Thrilled Kitty this piece is guaranteed, but please note that this print is not pencil signed and titled by the artist, although it looks to be the case: the signature and title are reproduced in the margin as part of the print, although it requires very close inspection to determine this.

Condition Report: This modern print is in excellent condition, fresh and unmarked. The sheet lies flat in the mount.
