The Cat in Art
What cats represent to us in life, they bring to art―elegance, grace, mischievousness, and tranquility. In The Cat in Art you’ll find cats standing and sitting, playing and pouncing, and of course, sleeping their way through 170 masterpieces from the ancient world to the present. You’ll see paintings by Van Eyck, Raphael, Leonardo, Bruegel, Rembrandt, Chardin, Gainsborough, Manet, Renoir, Bonnard, Gauguin, Matisse, Balthus, Picasso, Warhol, and many others. Sometimes the cat is the star of the work, and sometimes it works its magic from the corner of a room, in which case both the whole work and a detail showing the cat are shown.
