Ferdinand Henri Oger (1872-1929, French)

Ferdinand Henri Oger (1872-1929, French) created many portraits of cats as etchings and as watercolors. His cats are poised, regal and soft. Unfortunately, there isn’t any biographical information on him. He seems a mystery. However, we are left with his amazing cat portraits that reveal his love of the animal. Oger also depicted lions, dogs, cattle and horses; however, his domestic cat portrayals are probably his best.
