Cats in Garden Art part 2

Part 2 in the Cats in Gardens portrayed in art series.

This is "Young Girl with Cat" by Nicola Marschall. It dates to 1859 and is in the collection of the Morris Museum of Art, Georgia.

This youg cat is clearly not happy about sitting for a portrait and the young girl herself looks on the edge of wildness, just barely keeping it together. The garden itself is an interesting mix as well-- a carefully arranged urn of cut flowers with a shrub border to the rear.
