  1. Thank you for the wonderful collection of Rumyantsev's cat paintings, found by idly googling his name, which I only knew from a single postcard of his 'Evening Melody'. You have brought great joy!

  10. I just visited St. Petersburg and bought a book of his art at a street stall outside of Catherine's Palace in Pushkin. It is in Russian only though. There seems to be stories and poems attached to the illustrations but I will have to find someone to translate them as the book does not seem to exist in English.
