Cats in Art: Greenwich Village Backyards

My continuing series on Cats in Art.

The Ash Can School was a group of American painters devoted to commonplace subjects. They typically painted journalistic scenes of the city like this painting by John Sloan of children building a snowman in a Greenwich Village alley. One cat spies on the children while another simply huddles on the fence.

Again, a call to get out to a trail.
