The Austrian artist Guido Grünewald (1881–1935) created many etchings of animals, especially cats. Some of his works were sold to the Robertson-Deschamps gallery in New York, including this etching and etching of a sleeping cat ( see next item number), which recieved name Chessie, as an advertising mascot for the US railroad company Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. The drawing of a sleeping cat was the most famous advertising symbol and trademark of this society. Later, an abstract of this drawing became the trademark of Chessie System Inc.
