Franz Ludwig Catel, German

Doug, Trying Desperately to Remember Which is the Merlot and Which is the Rat Poison, 1824

Oil on canvas


  1. When this painting was later used, with a different caption, at GoComics, and without an accompanying blog entry, it listed the artist as Franz Ludwig Catel, as a Google image search finds, and my GoComics comment substantiates.

    The 1824 date is accurate; but, Manuel Castellano was born in 1826.
