Living in close proximity to a large urban park, we have nurtured and loved our share of cats. We were attracted to the sculptural rendering of the arched back cat by Calvin Cooper. We purchased the piece signed and dated 1993 from the artist while displayed at "A Day in the Country" the annual folk art fest. It is whimsical and graphic with it's square dotted pattern and spindly legs. His work is in the museum at the Kentucky Folk Art Center in Morehead, Kentucky.
