Additional information:

n fact the cat’s name was Polly. He was one of the favourite pet of Kubrick’s family. Katharina – Christiane’s and Stanley’s daughter painted this portrait for the 60th birthday of her father Stanley.

Katherina said “After the birth of the first of my three sons I left the film industry and began painting again in the late 1980s, at first for my own pleasure and then as a full change of professional direction. I have been painting ever since. My specific influences are the 16th century Dutch and Flemish still life painters and my mother, Christiane Kubrick, for her use of colour and composition. I have always been fascinated by reflection, texture and colour and seek to capture the magical play of light on a variety of everyday objects such as the pearl-like luminescence of a white onion”.
