Geoffrey Tristram - 20th Century Gouache, Bartholomew



A superb study of a cat on a marble topped mantlepiece by the British artist Geoffrey Tristram. Originally painted for a stationery and ceramic range. Due to the successes of the original illustrations Tristram went on the create a large range of paintings and studies of cats. This particular study is titled Bartholemu, "Wherever there’s a fireplace, there’s usually a cat nearby. And when Bartholomew gets too warm, he simply hops onto the mantelpiece to cool down a little and rearrange the ornaments!".

The composition is highly detailed, with intricate brushwork and a masterful control of light and colour. Excellently presented in a white card mount and gilt frame. The artist has signed his name 'Trist' in the base of the stone bust.

Signed. On wove.


With some very minor marks to the corners of the frame. Overall the condition is excellent.
