Corrections and clarifications

Cats artwork

Cat-astrophe in Pet Corner (28 November, G2, p12). We asked how many furry felines were depicted in the “world’s largest cat painting”, which sold for $826,000 in 2015. But none of the possible answers – 35, 350, 3,500 or 35,000 – was correct. The US millionaire who commissioned the artwork in 1891, Kate Birdsall Johnson, is reported to have owned 350 cats, but only 42 of them appeared in the painting, My Wife’s Lovers by the Austrian artist Carl Kahler.
