French military hat with plume

Oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord panel
6" x 8"

While in Paris last year I visited a friend who had this great antique french military hat sitting on a bureau in his living room.  Being an enthusiastic hat collector myself, I was compelled to photograph it for later transposition into paint.  I was also amused to think how this chapeau would not last 10 minutes on a table in my house as the bright red plume would prove to be too much of a temptation to my rambunctious resident felines.
