William Steig's Feline Flautist

A woman, a chair, two cats, and a flute: these are the basic inhabitants of this lyrical drawing by William Steig. It was published in his outstanding 1979 collection Drawings. Apparently this is one of the few drawings from the book that was not published in The New Yorker, though it's hard to see why not.

Note:  I'm generally delighted to post original Steig art. If anyone owning an original is looking to share it on this site, just contact me. With any luck your photography skills are better than mine.
