It's Possible To Love A Cat

It's Possible To Love A Cat

from 300.00

Douglas Hagger

“Before this litter of kittens came into our lives for us to foster, I never cared for cats. This particular kitten, however, taught me it was possible to love a cat. He was always a bit of an outsider from the rest of the pack, which I suppose made me more drawn to him. He had a great personality, and possessed the most incredibly clear blue eyes. As you can see, he was a natural in the photo shoots.”

Finer Space’s 2 penny worth:

We love the positioning of the various elements within this photo. The unicorn is clearly supposed to be the star of the show, but our attention is drawn to the kitten who dominates the front of the stage, as he brings his paw forward in an attempt to copy the famous rearing kick. The frosty pinks and icy blues accentuate the young vulnerability of this rising star. With the possibility of glory in his eyes as he stares determinedly at the swinging gold chord, this is his moment to shine.

The cooler tones of this work would look delicious in a modern space.

The Technical Details

Doug’s great design has been printed onto Canson Rag Photographique. This beaut museum quality archival paper is a matte stock, 100% cotton, is 310gsm and a lovely bright white. It handles shadow detail and tonal variations beautifully. The inks used are fully archival Epson UltraChrome K3® pigment inks. They’re pretty special inks, and with the correct care this piece will last a lifetime.

There’s a thin white margin around this piece, which helps with framing (so the actual piece isn’t obscured by the frame), and importantly enables you to be able to pick up the artwork without touching it (oils from your hands can ruin the printed area).

This here is a quality piece of artisan craft.

Packaging:

Your prints will arrive in strong, acid-free clear polypropylene sleeves or sheets. We’ll pop the artwork in it’s sleeve into a super-duper strong kraft mailing tube so that it survives it’s journey to you completely unscathed. For more info, see our Quality and Sustainability section.

We also include a card with the artist’s story, as well as their story behind your chosen artwork.

Upon receiving your print

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling. There is likely to be a slight curl as it has been resting inside the postage tube. Gently unfurl. Keeping the print within it’s protective cover, you can carefully weigh each corner (for example, with a book), to help the curl straighten out.

When you do take the print out of it’s protective cover, touch only the edges of the paper, and lift the print by the opposite corners.

We do include a little ‘how to care for your print’ piece with every artwork, so if your piece is intended as a gift the lucky recipient will have guidance.
