Lot 708: Wain (Louis, 1860-1939). "The Ambush", gouache heightened with bodycolour, showing a large group of kittens in a forest, armed with knives and pistols, ambushing a portly gentleman cat, who has dropped all his parcels in great surprise, signed lower right, 36.5 x 29.5cm (14.5 x 11.5ins), mounted, framed and glazed. Provenance: Exhibited at the Michael Parkin Fine Art Gallery, York, and illustrated in 'Louis Wain's Cats', by Michael Parkin, Thames and Hudson, 1983. An excellent, lively picture, perhaps one of the best examples of Louis Wain's work to come on the market in recent years. (1)
