Daniel Merlin (1861-1933, French)

Daniel Merlin (1861-1933, French) was a prolific painter of cats and kittens. His paintings are in a typical 19th century style reminiscent of Henriette Ronner-Knip, Louis Eugene Lambert, Julius Adam, and Leon Charles Huber’s paintings.  Both cats and kittens are featured in the midst of creating mischief usually in domestic scenes. Not much is known about his personal life, but it is evident that he was surrounded by cats and able to capture their movements in detail.

His works are regularly up for auction. His painting Young Rascals sold at Christie’s for $12,817 in 1999.
