Paul Cadmus (American, 1904-1999). Two-color crayon drawing on blue paper depicting a fluffy cat with a white chest and paws looking upwards.

Provenance: Estate of Paul Cadmus; The collection of Jon Anderson; Private Minnesota collection.

Height: 6 3/4 in x width: 13 1/4 in.


The drawing is in great condition with no visible tears or losses, or major creases. To the lower left quadrant, there is a light crease measuring 1/2 inch. Along the right and lower margins, there is wear as shown in the listing image; however, it appears to be original to the artistic practice. Due to the original paper color, it is difficult to discern whether the paper is toned or not. Along the lower, there are three minute white marks, which do not affect the cat. Clean verso. No visible sign of restoration under UV light.
