Here is a delightful vintage art etching titled, 'Landscape with 5 Cats' made by Swiss artist Claude Saucy. The detail of this piece is lovely, and there are indeed five little cats hidden in this picture which makes it all the more special. The work is number 56/100 and is signed by the artist. Dated to the mid-1900s.
There is age-related discoloration and foxing to the paper adding true authenticity and charm to the work. It would look superb in a thin black or gold frame.

About the Artist
Claude Gerald Saucy (1929-1999) was a Swiss-born print maker and educator whose primary media were wood engraving, copperplate engraving, and etching. He studied art in Switzerland under Max Bill, a Swiss architect, artist, painter, typeface designer, industrial designer and graphic designer. Saucy spent his early career as an artist and teacher in Switzerland where he became known for his black and white surrealistic prints. He moved with his family to Connecticut in 1966 to become Head of the Art Department at the Kent School, a private college preparatory school, a position he held until he retired in 1993. Saucy is included in the Biografisches Lexikon der Schweizer Kunst [Biographical Dictionary of Swiss Artists] (1998).
