I bought this and the "naughty dogs" artwork that I also have listed from a reputable auction house some time ago who confirmed both pieces of artwork are ORIGINALS AND NOT PRINTS.

The artwork is still in its original frame and retains its original backing paper. It does show natural signs of ageing as it is approx 80 years old, but no damage, repair, or foxing.

The majority of his work depicted dogs, and the cat pieces are much rarer.
