Siamese Cat and Butterfly (Greetings Card)

About this artwork

Miller Parker produced numerous commercial prints featuring Siamese cats, including this one. Her cats were often accompanied by other creatures or plants including birds, butterflies and flowers, revealing the animal's natural sense of curiosity. Many of her prints were based on the countless studies she made of her own pets, though few of these drawings survive today. A further two prints of cats also belong to the Scottish National Gallery including one of her best known works ‘The Challenge’, produced in 1934.
