Holy Cats! It’s A Tale of Two Kitties. Want to learn how to smell a rat? Is there anything you want to know about Caterwaul’s Catalog of Hairballs but were afraid to ask? There’s a very specialized library in "Frederick the Literate", arguably Charles Wysocki’s most beloved cat painting, and it’s available as a giclee canvas edition for a very small group of collectors. The edition will be limited to the exact number of collectors who order it by June 30, 2011. After that date, no more orders will be taken.
These are every cat’s dream books from A Field Guide to the Garbage Can to Delicious Field Mice I Have Known by international best-selling catty writers such as Thomas Cheshire and Kitty Mewpur. Frederick the literate himself, exhausted from all this study, sleeps soundly, dreaming of the next big catch.
“We’re both cat lovers and this painting is dedicated to Frederick,” said the artist. "He was one of our favorite cats, if not the favorite. Fred was Mr. Wonderful but now he’s in the library in the sky. Although we’re all very dedicated and serious about our artwork, there is always time for humor. As soon as we came up with the idea, we knew we had to do it. My wife Liz and I spent our breakfasts, lunches and dinners thinking about the book titles for this painting, including Cat o' Nine Tales, Rat Holes of the World and The Catebury Tales. This is one of those cases when after all these years of doing more subtle ‘story’ humor, all my more obvious puns were piling up. They had to come out!”

What is a Personal Commission?
The Personal Commission was created by The Greenwich Workshop, Inc. as a way for all customers who desire so to collect an artist whose fine art editions often sell out and are difficult to find. Collectors “commission” their personal copy of a given edition during a set period of time. Delivery of completed edition begins shortly after the edition size is determined by the total number of orders received during the Commission Period.
This Fine Art Anniversary Giclée Canvas edition will be limited to the number of prints ordered during the commission period May 1, 2011 - June 30, 2011. Confirmation of the final edition size will be sent July 5, 2011.
