Natalia Goncharova, Cats (rayonist perception in rose, black and yellow), 1913, oil on canvas, 85.1 x 85.7 cm, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Source
According to Jennifer Blessing, the painting Cats exemplifies the stylistic fusion of Cubo-Futurism and Orphism, known as Rayism, which was orchestrated by Goncharov and Mikhail Larionov in late 1912 (source). Two black felines and a tabby are represented as refracted rays of light, creating a dynamic blast of shapes and lines.
