OPPORTUNISTIC FELINE




Nicolaes Maes - Old Woman Saying Grace (1656)
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.
The realism portrayed in this painting is typical of the art being produced by Dutch painters at the time.  The opportunistic kitten taking advantage of the woman's prayerful moment adds a touch of humour to the picture.
