‘Tom Tom’ – Cat & Butterfly | Oil on Board | 1982

This is a small and thoroughly charming oil on board in an honest, simple style. We see Tom Tom, a black cat with a flash of white on the very tip of his tail, distracted by a fluttering butterfly as he makes his patrol of a meadow in full summer bloom. This piece was painted in July 1982 and bears the artist’s initials G.N.A. on the reverse. It sits in its original rustic hand-made wooden frame, complete with a well-aged eyelet loop for hanging.

We have lightly cleaned this picture and frame and replaced the old sealing tape on the rear with a new (but visually identical) tape. It is otherwise in fully original condition and is ready to hang or give as a gift.

As with all original art from Thrilled Kitty, this piece is guaranteed to be an original work and not a copy, print, or reproduction.

Approximate Dimensions:

Height – 12.5cm
Width – 14cm

Condition Report: In very good vintage condition. Some light surface marks on the painting and very slight ageing of the varnish. The frame is solid and sturdy, with a few very minor knocks in keeping with age, and a few touches of green paint on the rear (not seen on display).

Medium: Oil on board

Mount & Under-mount Materials: None

Framed or Unframed: Framed (See our Framing Guide for help)
