Vintage illustrated book "Paintbrush in Paris" by Jill Butler copyright 1994. The artistic adventures of an American cat in Paris.

This is the story of Paintbrush, a cat, who goes to Paris to become a great artist and live in a wonderful studio and have a very French experience.

As an artist, a cat has no home in the world save Paris. (To paraphrase Nietzsche.) Here is the story of Paintbrush, the cat in a bow tie who leaves family, friends and the Midwest behind to chase a dream of artistic fulfillment.

In a charming tale of adventure, Jill Butler follows Paintbrush from his first excursions beyond his atelier to his dream come true - an invitation to show his work. Along the way he learns to live a la francaise in the city of Manet, Degas, Pissarro and Picasso. He breakfasts on cafe au lait and a croisant amande, travels the metro, shops daily for provisions at open air markets, haunts museums and the Left Bank galleries. And works, works, works on his exhibition.

Such dedication. Such an artist. (Quel chat, Monsieur Paintbrush!)

Measures 6.25 inches tall, 4.75 inches wide. 93 pages.

Excellent condition, the dust jacket does have some wear and tears, but still in good condition, super clean pages, like brand new.
