Girl Making a Garland, Hans Suess von Kulmbach, 1480-1521. During the Middle Ages, Saint Gertrude of Nivelles was the patroness of cats and Saint Agatha was also known as Saint Gato or Saint Cat. (Kulmbach subsequently joined the workshop of Albrecht Dürer, with whom he enjoyed a lifelong friendship and collaboration. This association perhaps accounts for the false Dürer monogram and date above the cat)
