Ginnie Otis Original O/C Morris the Cat Painting, 1972

This is one of 6 paintings by this very talented artist that we have on eBay this week. Ginnie Crozier Otis was an artist with a love of animals. Nearly all of her subjects were 4-legged. She loved pets and she was a great patron of animal humane societies - all of the profits from her art sales went to a wide variety of animal rescue groups and humane societies. Mrs. Otis had her home in Wilmington, Delaware and she had a studio from spring through fall in Ocean City, NJ. Her earliest works were done in the 1960's and she worked at least through the early 1980's, possibly longer. She had an avid clientele base and waiting lists for her portraiture ran into many months. As one of the attached news stories reports, she produced well over 400 animal portraits for clients all along the eastern seaboard and beyond. As you will see in these few examples, she was quite talented and her love of animals is apparent in her work. All of the offerings we have are Oil on Canvas and they are attached to stretchers but they are all unframed. Any lover of dogs will surely want to see all of these beautiful original paintings - they're wonderfully done.
This auction is for a portrait of one of the most famous cats of all time - Morris. This piece was painted by Mrs. Otis in 1972 and it captures the 'original' Morris quite well - he's got his food and you'd best not challenge those claws, which are at the ready! The painting measures 20" x 16". It is signed in the lower right corner and dated 1972 on the stretcher. T are a couple of spots or paint flubs in the lower left corner but no other damages.
Don't miss any of these outstanding animal portraits in oil by Ginnie Crozier Otis!
