I posted this cat once before but now I have the identity. In early 1900's, Paris, France, Theophile Steinlen, painted pictures of his personal cats. This one is called "Summer Cat." There is a Winter Cat out there somewhere. These cats were printed in limited editions and are very rare.
While watching ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, this past week, I saw my cat presented and the appraiser place value of the signed lithographs at 10,000 to $12,000. Sago Publishing was the printer.
My "cat" has the signature, and the emblem is in the upper right hand corner.
I have decided to remat and frame and enjoy before deciding the next step.
