Woman finds hilarious painting resembling her cat: ‘What a find’

The world of art is constantly changing. As some people spurn classic pieces for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and others opt for intentionally bad tattoos that have wowed thousands, you would be forgiven for thinking that traditional painting has fallen out of favor.

But the unusual find of a woman’s painting proved that there is still room for traditional art.

Allie, who uses the Reddit handle Prestigious-Theory-4, shared her discovery on Reddit on Thursday. Allie is currently in college in Potsdam, New York and found the painting while she was storing things for the summer.

She noticed it because of the striking resemblance to her own black cat, Jasper, who will be two years old in October.

“It was left in the middle of the ground, not near any particular unit,” she said news week: “Having seen it several times after several trips, I noticed that it resembles the popular artist Vanessa Stockard, of whom I am a fan. Although I’m sure this is a recreation of one of her pieces.”

Australian artist Stockard is known for her contemporary figurative paintings that emulate famous works in art history such as those of Johannes Vermeer The girl with the pearl earring and Whistler’s mother by James McNeill Whistler. Your signature? Each image includes a small portrait of her black cat, Kevin.

Stockard has painted numerous works in which Kevin the Cat wears an elaborate Elizabethan ruff around his neck – similar to the one in the picture Allie found.

“I shared the picture because my friend and I got a kick out of it, so I thought others could do it and it seems they did,” Allie said. In fact, the image with the found painting and the cat Jasper delighted the users on Reddit.

“Amazing,” wrote one commenter, while another said, “Who would throw that away? Great score,” and one person wrote, “What a find.”

“One person’s junk is another person’s treasure,” said another Redditor, “How could someone throw away a masterpiece like that?”

The adorable artwork features a black cat wearing an eye-catching ruff and a hat with the word ‘fool’ on it. A slight insult, dumbass refers to a person who is slow to learn or stupid — a fact Redditors thought the cat might have some feelings about.

“This cat is very offended,” joked one commenter. Another said: “Your cat looks quite skeptical about the resemblance.”

“Based on your cat’s facial expression, I’m 94% confident she can read,” said one commenter.

Allie is over the moon with her new artwork and says it’s currently hanging in her dorm but will definitely travel with her from place to place.
