The World’s Largest Cat Painting Sells For $826,000

This is My Wife’s Lovers, a painting by Austrian artist Cal Kahler. It’s a majestic display of feline beauty consisting of 42 cats on a canvas that measures 75 by 102 inches. If you’re looking for the world’s ultimate cat painting, you’ve found it.

In 1881, Kahler visited the United States and met a lady named Johnson. In 1891, she asked him to paint a portrait of all of her cats. This monumental work is the result of his labors, though it shows only 42 of Mrs. Johnson’s 350 cats.

      Haven’t you seen those old still motion films where they used hidden wires to hold the animals in place for each shot?

    This is so funny because in France and Europe in general the Art shows for huge paintings like this – that were the vertical type for home with 17 foot walls – were called a Kat show . When the Kat shows were moved to buildings with 9 foot ceilings or less they were painted in section to get in the rooms they painted landscape styles like this or bring a Kat Kit of 3-4 cells to be hanged in place for viewing .
    In the 1930’s someone came up with a chocolate bar based on this popular Art display and called it a Kit Kat from it’s 4 fingers that were like the four panel paintings.
