This is My Wife's Lovers, a painting by Austrian artist Cal Kahler. It's a majestic display of feline beauty consisting of 42 cats on a canvas that measures 75 by 102 inches. If you're looking for the world's ultimate cat painting, you've found it.
In 1881, Kahler visited the United States and met a lady named Johnson. In 1891, she asked him to paint a portrait of all of her cats. This monumental work is the result of his labors, though it shows only 42 of Mrs. Johnson's 350 cats.
Sotheby's in New York sold it on Monday for $826,000. It's surely worth every penny.
