About

Arthur Heyer, 1871-1932 Oil on canvas Circa 1890 Signed on the front. Portrait of a very fluffy white cat intently stalking a small red bug on the floor in front of him, with one raised paw ready to strike. Arthur Heyer was born in Haarhausen. He studied at the college of applied arts in Berlin. In 1896 he went into exile in Rakospalota, near Budapest and eventually settled there permanently. He began by painting landscapes and then developed into an animal painter, with a particular attraction for cats. He provided illustrations for books produced by the Franklinische Verlag, which specialized in books about animals. He also worked for Shver’s Familieblatt (Shver’s Family Magazine) and Uber Land und Meer (Over Land and Sea).
