Context
Jamie Wyeth had often done drawings of the rock in the middle of this field on Monhegan Island. Long interested in depicting animals in their habitat, he decided to get “a ton of catnip” to get these indigenous Maine cats to stay in this field on Monhegan Island.

Featured in “Maine and American Art: Farnsworth Art Museum” with thanks to the Henry Luce Foundation and Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
