Oil on board by Mrs. Jackson
Acquired from Salvation Army Thrift Store, Hyde Park by Scott Wilson
Stirring in its portayal of feline angst. Is Peter hungry or contemplating his place in a hungry world? The artist has evoked both hopelessness and glee with his irrational use of negative space.
For several years, Peter the Kitty was retired from public exhibition due to its obvious age and fraility. (At left, notice paint peeled away in chest area.) Our very dear friends at the Main Street Museum in Hartford Village, Vermont, have stablilized this painting and we are now confident that there will be no further deterioration
