It's a beautiful image of Duchess with her three kittens, Marie, Berlioz, and Toulouse.

He would go on to paint backgrounds for almost every single Disney animated feature film for over 40 years. He also was a leading artist in the California Watercolor Society. His Fine Art paintings have been exhibited in many galleries across the country. This art is in acrylic on illustration board measuring 10" x 8". Tack holes in all four corners, with minor handling and edge wear. In Very Good condition.
