New Deal Art: "White Cat"
Above: "White Cat," an oil painting by Gertrude Abercrombie (1909-1977), created while she was in the WPA's Federal Art Project, ca. 1935-1938. Notice that the white cat can also be seen in the painting on the wall. An interesting biography of Abercrombie can be found on Wikipedia. Image courtesy of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
