Provenance: Graham Gallery exhibition of works by Edward Gorey, April 23-May 18, 1974, item 33.
A whimsical original Gorey drawing depicting a cat standing on a stool, painting a very detailed wallpaper.
"Gorey created 46 original pieces of art for the exhibition, entitled Plain & Coloured Drawings by Edward Gorey. In an interview from 1977, Mr. Gorey stated that since his early days as an artist up to the time of the Graham show he rarely, if ever, created art without a purpose (commission work, or for one of his own books), so this exhibition was a unique experience for him, and a rare treat for his admirers."
