Domino! & Six Studies of a Cat

This GIF is created from two artworks created by painters from Great Britain. Six Studies of a Cat (ca. 1763-1769) by Thomas Gainsborough are subtly looped together in this animation, showing a  cat napping, turning and washing itself. The animated drawing is artfully placed by the GIF artist in a laundry basket in the oil painting depicting a game of dominoes (Domino!, 1886) between two seamstresses by Frank Bramley. The cat seems to fit perfectly in this calm painting–only the drawing technique reveals that the cat comes from another artwork.
