Unknown artist (Italian, 19th century?)
Italian Boy and Cat
Oil on canvas, c. 91.44 x 68.58 cm
Presented by Archbishop Goold, 1867
Unidentified, present location unknown

This canvas, still listed in the 1943 NGV catalogue, no longer appears to be in the collection. In the absence of a photograph, there seems little likelihood of identifying it.

Goold also donated * Unknown (Italian 19C?) Martyrdom of St Sebastian {1867} Loc? [PA].


NGV 1875, p.20 (Anon.: Boy and cat); NGV 1894, p.125 (V.Buvelot Gallery, 8th bay, no.9; size given as 36 x 27 inches).
