sassy cat

This is Julie Manet, Edouard Manet's niece.  (Here's what she looked like a little later on in life.) The painting is by Pierre-Auguste Renoir.  The year is 1887.  And the cat, name and important social position unknown, is stealing the show.

Gorgeous kitty, and lovely hair in both those paintings of her.
