Description

The concept of “Cat” shows was still very new in the early 1870’s and truly captured the imagination of Victorian spectators, used to a regular diet of “Naturalist” exhibitions. The media of the day gave such events consistently good coverage, including The Illustrated London News, The Graphic, The Pictorial World, and the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News among others. This particular image comes from the October 10th 1874 edition of “The Pictorial World” and the caption simply reads: “Cats and their admirers”. It is the work of M.Fitzgerald.

Such images are of significance as they assist in putting these events into an historic and social perspective. They are also a valuable eye witness record and a useful snapshot of social commentary at the time.

The Show in fact took place on September 28th, 1874. Although this image was not drawn by Weir, the Judges for this show are recorded as: Mr H.Weir, Mr J.Jenner Weir, and Mr P H Jones.

Prints are currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options. A1 s currently being considered.
