Kiyoshi Saitō
Striped Mother Cat and Kittens

ca. 1960s

About

A striped mother cat feeds her two kittens. The background is a grey woodgrain, which gives the work a delightful feeling of floating. There is a layer of woodgrain-patterned mica that has been layered atop the design. Saito designed a similar work in the 1950s that he titled “Caress (A)”. Saito was a true master of the woodblock print medium, employing richly textured backgrounds and patterns and semi-abstracted stylized forms that nevertheless communicate the essence of his subject matter. His works of cats are highly prized and rather scarce in the market. Signed in ink "Kiyoshi Saito" with the red artist's seal. Perfect for a children's room or nursery or playroom.
