Cats After van Gogh Keepsake Box Set

Cats After van Gogh is one of the most popular design sets I have, and I am proud of that. It’s a style I developed entirely from seeing the internationally touring exhibit “Van Gogh Up Close”, bringing my cats into a new style of creative expression. More on that below.

They tend to be popular on keepsake boxes too, especially this nesting set. Use them to store your kitty’s keepsakes or your own, or jewelry or office items and much more. Give them as a gift or use them as gift boxes. Some people have used them as urns for their pet’s cremains.

I choose colors that coordinate with the artwork and paint each box, in this case the red and blue being liberally used in each of the paintings. I then print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the lid. I finish the bottom and lid of the box with water-based clear varnish. Box insides are unfinished.

The boxes are handmade and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections.

I was so taken by the exhibit “Van Gogh Close Up” that I began visualizing sketches of my cats and other things in techniques and colors that van Gogh may have used, the thick impasto of the paint, the contrasting outlines of figures and bright bold non-objective colors The first of these was “Two Cats After van Gogh”, using oil pastel to create the layered impasto and texture. I also have other keepsake boxes and gift items with other images in this style such as “Mimi on the Windowsill “, “Sunshine in Colors”, and “Kelly’s Yellow Bath”. Please search my shop for those titles to see the items I offer with those images.

These papier-mâché boxes are hand-painted in indigo with bright red trim, with a print of one of my “Two Cats After van Gogh” sketches adhered to the lid. Lid and bottom are finished with a light coat of matte-finish varnish. Insides are unfinished. Boxes nest and measure 6″ x 6″, 5″ x 5″ and 4″ x 4″. Price includes shipping.
