Reclining Tiger, oil on canvas

This rather early oil painting of a tiger is typical of Fritz’s painting style of the 1960s: the object is isolated on a white background in the center of the canvas. The lines are clear, the contours sharp and there is usually no background. In this painting, the complementary color blue is used to suggest a bit of sky or perhaps a body of water. As is so often the case with Fritz’s cat paintings, the animal seems to be looking directly in the eye of its observer.
