Benno Kogl (1891-1969/72/73?, German)

Benno Kogl, his real name, Benedikt (1891-1969/72/73?, German) mainly painted still lifes and cats. Because of his love of painting cats, he was nicknamed Katzen-Kogl or Cat Kogl. Most of his paintings are miniatures, and some do not exceed one square inch. Not much is known about him, but his paintings show the distinct influence of Julius Adam, another well-known German artist who painted primarily cats and kittens.  His works are still available today from most auction houses.
