Cats in Art: Woman With a Cat (Renoir)

From my continuing weekly Sunday series of cats in art. I am using some ideas from the coffee table book, The Cat in Art, by Stefano Zuffi. 
NOTE: this post originally appeared on 17 Oct 2010.  I figured it was worth another appearance.  Again I must warn the young woman that she is about to get schooled by a cat, and it will be a painful lesson indeed.

Woman With a Cat, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, 1875, 56 x 46 cm, oil on canvas. Image credit here.

While the young lady looks pretty happy with the situation, the same cannot be said of the cat, who looks ready to bolt. The woman better watch out for those hind claws when the cat launches itself from her arms.
