This is k Madison Moore's Deliberate Exaggeration of the American Gothic Painting by Grant Wood.

American Feline Gothic - Edward and Catherine


American Gothic is a Painting  by Grant Wood  in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is an American painter with European training.

Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." The painting shows a farmer standing beside his spinster daughter. The figures were modeled by the artist's sister and their dentist. 

The woman is dressed in a colonial print apron evoking 19th-century Americana,  and the couple are in the traditional roles of men and women, the man's pitchfork symbolizing hard labor. It is one of the most familiar images in 20th-century American Art and has been widely parodied in American popular culture.  

This is my depiction being American Feline Gothic. Instead of being the father and spinster daughter, in my panting they are Edward and Catherine a married couple that have worked hard all of their lives and raised many children in the country…and of course they are feline people and not humans!

Google American Gothic and see the images of so many artists that have their own renditions of this painting. Just so funny that I had to do my own.

Dance hall in its general meaning is a hall for dancing. From the earliest years of the twentieth century until the early 1960s, the dance hall was the popular forerunner of the discotheque or nightclub. The majority of towns and cities in the West had at least one dance hall, and almost always featured live musicians playing a range of music from strict tempo ballroom dance music to big band, swing and jazz.  One of the most famous dance hall musicians wasGlenn Miller.

A taxi dance hall is a type of dance hall where dancers (who are usually young women) called taxi dancers are paid to dancewith patrons (usually male). The owners of a taxi dance hall provide music and a dance floor for their patrons and taxi dancers. In the United States during the 1920s and 1930s, when taxi dancing was at its peak, patrons of taxi dance halls would typically buy dance tickets for ten cents each. When they presented a ticket to a taxi dancer, she would dance with them for the length of a single song. Taxi dancers earned a commission on every dance ticket that they collected from their male dance partners. The ticket-a-dance system is the centerpiece of the taxi dance halls.

Cats in Clothes Paintings - Chef Roberto by k Madison Moore

Roberto The Chef

Cats in Clothes Paintings Series

22 x 30 Cat Oil Painting on Canvas

Sold - Commission

My collector had a cat named Bob. 
Bob loved to sit on a stool in the kitchen near the counter when
his human was cooking.  He used to sit on the rails of the deck
in the summer looking down at all the food on the BBQ grill just waiting 
for that chicken to be done. His favorite thing was food and watching it cook.

His human wanted to memorialize him buy making him the chief chef
in his kitchen where he could still overlook all the cooking going on.
How cute is that!

Contact me here if you have an idea for your cat in clothes or a  special 
theme that you want. What a nice way to memorialize your cat. I can also
paint a traditional pet portrait for you. Please feel free to contact  me with 
your ideas.

Gustave Klimt Loved Cats - Can you find them in his Tree of Life by k Madison Moore

Klimt's 24 Crazy Cats

Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series

11 x 14 Oil on Canvas


I was surprised to find  that Klimt was cat crazy and had many cats.
Therefore the inspiration for this painting.

I wanted to make them as comical as I could and use Klimt's Tree of Life
for many of them.   Cats are said to have nice lives so what better than a
Tree of Life or them to play in.

I  the most cats I had at once was  a family of 13. What a challenge. I kept
every one til the end and and gave them a great life. Living in the mountains
that had hundreds of tress to climb and play in. What a joy to have a cat
