Awwww. I mean, really! This cat will be dead within days.
Gig's kitties probably had the largest eyes-to-body-weight ratio of any of the big-eyed artists' critters. So soulful, so pitiful. In fact, "Pity Kitty" is a title I've often seen applied to this one. Isn't that strange? The popularity of abused and neglected animals as decoration?
I mentioned before that nobody has been able to find "Gig," the master of saucer-eyed puppies and kittens. Here's another mind blower: what happened to the original paintings? Forget Leonardo's lost Leda and the Swan, forget the hoopla surrounding rediscovered Caravaggios... where are the lost Gigs?
Art history, I weep for thee.
