Bella presents a cat portrait tonight! This pastel drawing is called "Portrait of Miss Pearl Rossi", by the Pre-Raphaelite artist Marie Scatalli Stillcat. Miss Pearl has a grand-grand-grand-daughter living nowadays in Lucan, Ireland. Both kitties are famed for their beauty and shiny black fur. It seems they love scratching playful young dogs as well...
(This work is based on "Luisa Strozzi", a painting from the amazingly talented Marie Spartali Stillman, 1884).

(Dedicated to Monica Rossi)
