Tennant's Sculpture of the black cat "Pretty Boy Floyd"

Allie Tennant had a great sense of humor. In the 1930s she adopted a stray cat that appeared at her Dallas home. She named  it in honor of the then well-known gangster Pretty Boy Floyd. Allie grew close to the cat and sculpted it in Belgium marble.
