Artistic Advent: Merry Xmas, 1921

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