April 1

My Wife's Lovers

My Wife's Lovers is an 1891 painting by Austrian artist Carl Kahler depicting forty-two Turkish Angora cats belonging to American millionaire Kate Birdsall Johnson. Not having painted cats before, Kahler spent three years studying cat poses and learning their habits. At the center of the painting sits Sultan, bought by Johnson during a trip to Paris. She lent the painting to the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and, following her death, it was acquired by Ernest Haquette for his Palace of Art Salon in San Francisco. Kahler died in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and the salon where the painting was hung was destroyed, but the picture survived. The 6-by-8.5-foot (183-by-259-centimetre) oil-on-canvas painting weighs 227 lb (103 kg), and was sold at Sotheby's in 2015 to a private buyer from California.
