This small watercolour by Mary Fedden is actually a remake of an earlier work painted by the artist in 1980. In both she depicts her partner, Julian Trevelyan, standing in a street of white stone buildings reaching out toward a disembodied hand. In this iteration however she has chosen to paint two cats rather than the dog in the 1980 version. This is an example of Fedden’s characteristic collaging together of imagery to form her compositions – she would make many sketches and pull from them to do this.
