Classic Antique 1890s Aesthetic Walnut Frame & Folk Art Cat Oil Painting. As you look at this antique Folk Art Oil Painting of a Striped Cat, you get the feeling she tolerates the big pink bow, but doesn’t really like it. Hand painted original oil painting on artist board, 9-¼” wide by 15-¾” tall. Framing it perfectly, is a 17-¾” by 23-¾” hand carved Walnut frame from the Aesthetic Period ca. 1880s (sold on eBay in 2012).
