A Wonderful and Playful Original Louis Wain Watercolor

WAIN, Louis (1860-1939). “Leap-frog.” [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1915]. Original pen, ink, and watercolor drawing. Signed at lower right. Image size: 13 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches; 340 x 265 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed.

A wonderful example of a Louis Wain original watercolor drawing, depicting two cats, a brown tabby cat dressed as a policeman and a black cat with white markings on his face and white paws dressed as a jester and leaning on a cane, playing leap-frog on a sidewalk in front of a barber’s shop, the door reading “Combs./Tonsorial/Artist/Hair Cut. 6d./Shaving. 6d./Wigs.” There are three signs in the window behind them: “Mouse/Hair/Wash,” “Keep Your/Fur Clean/and Your/Nose Cold,” “Never Sit/on your Tail/it Spoils the/Fur.” A highly colorful and playful example.
