Extraordinary Antique Cat Chromolithographs by Alfred Brunel, the Famous Cat Painter

Brunel Cat Prints! Here is a pair of the best domesticated CAT dog prints I have ever come across.  These large American cat chromolithographs are entitled “Mixing the Colors” and “Anxious Moments.”

Anxious Moments & Mixing the Colors are after the oil paintings of Alfred-Arthur Brunel.  Published 1897 in New York, by the Amlico Publishing Company.  Intended to be sold as decorative artwork for stores and homes alike.   Intense inks were applied, each in it’s own process and sequence.  One color after another.  A limestone plate was specially lithographed for each and every color seen.  Artwork of felines was growing in popularity.  Mixing the Colors & Anxious Moments certainly would be popular in America so Brunel hired Amlico to publish the affordable & large pieces.  Fortunately, some did not sell and I was able to purchase the uncirculated stock of Mixing the Colors & Anxious Moments years ago from Ken Smith, old friend and American antique prints dealer in New Jersey (passed away).  Both are two of the finest examples of cat artwork ever published.

A striking wall of antique American artwork of Cats when hung as a pair.

Each antique cat chromolithograph measures 21 1/2 x 26 1/2″   with intense vibrant coloration.   Minor flaws mostly around the perimeter, which should be expected in large pieces such as these and they were not framed. Click here to contact us.
