Cat in the Garden Scarf
Since the late 19th century, scarves have been an important accessory, whose figurative and floral motifs often reflected the art of the day. Recalling this curated trend, this painterly Cat in the Garden Scarf is made whimsical by the unexpected: an adorable Siamese kitten in the flowerbed. 100% silk. Imported. 61"l. x 16.75"w.
The Smithsonian Institution holds hundreds of images of cats in its collections—everything from contemporary paintings, etchings and sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum to Qing dynasty cat images at our Freer Gallery of Art.
