Cats in Art: A Kind of Cat (Klee)

From my continuing weekly Sunday series of cats in art. I'm using some ideas from the coffee table book, The Cat in Art, by Stefano Zuffi.

Image credit WikiPaintings, here.  A Kind of Cat, Paul Klee, 1937, 21 cm x 27 cm, other info unavailable.

This is the second of the Klee paintings I was able to uncover.  It looks more cat-like the further back you view the image.  The kitty is subtle, seemingly partly hidden, and an interesting blend of pastel blues, greens, oranges and grays.  Definitely not a mainstream feline.

But all in all, I guess you could call it "A Kind of Cat," which is the title conferred by Klee.
