Ronald Searle: The Twelve Days of Christmas—and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Ronald Searle's 1982 original illustration of the Twelve Days of Christmas was sold by Christie's in 2001 for a very festive price. The artwork features a Searle cat and was created for a Camden Graphics Christmas card. It also depicts a partridge in a pear tree—and it's delicious!
