Artistic Advent: Merry Xmas, 1921

Edward Penfield (1866–1925)
Merry Xmas, 1921, 1921
Color linoleum cut print

Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.

This proves that anything can be made into a Christmas-themed work of art simply by adding the words “Merry Christmas” to it. Oddly enough, the Smithsonian American Art Museum seems to think the animal portrayed in this print is a tiger, but to me it's obviously a cat. It's wearing a collar! Why whould a tiger be wearing a collar?
