Judge's Comments: A beautifully unified painting. Forget that it is nominally about cats: turn it any direction and the design works (at 90 degrees, it looks like Hopper’s take on Monhegan). The interplay of lights and darks could easily fall out of balance, but it does not. The freshness of the brushwork and the warm scumbles in the shadows are also luscious. For the inner Ryder in us all. - Charlie Hunter
