Many cat lovers will pay almost anything to show their love for cats. However, if you really want to show how much you love cats, you might want to bid on a cat painting that sells for $300,000.
Titled “My Wife’s Lovers,” the 19th-century artwork is 6 feet tall and 8.5 feet wide and features more than 40 cats of various breeds and colors.
“The picture is so large and so heavy, we had to make a special wall to hang it,” Polly Sartori, head of 19th-century European paintings, drawings and sculpture at Sotheby’s, said. “When we originally put the painting up on a normal wall, it pulled the nails right out of the wall.”
Now the painting is on display in the center of the gallery for the Nov. 3 auction, and the auction house estimates that the painting will fetch between $200,000 and $300,000. if you have enough spare cash laying around, you might consider bidding for this painting.
