'Musical Chairs' Fantastic Louis Wain Cat Party Illustration Greeting Card



Yet another brilliant Louis Wain illustration.  Here we have a bunch of cats playing musical chairs at a party.  I love how Wain has managed to grasp all of the emotions attached to playing this game - fun, anticipation, sheer worry - in each of the cats.  The happiest cat, of course, is the one on the very edge who is not involved in the game but playing the music.  That was always the best place to be if I remember correctly!  I also love the paintings of the cat ancestors on the wall.  There is a lot of fun in this card.

The illustration has been lovingly restored from an English postcard dated 1920.  It has been printed on environmentally-friendly cardstock. It measures 115mm x 165mm and is landscape in configuration. The card is blank inside for your own message.  It comes with a white envelope and is housed in a cellophane wrapper.
