Cats have been subjects for artists since ancient times, and it’s no wonder. After all, with their beauty, grace and independence, combined with an air of mystery, cats are endlessly fascinating. The Book of the Cat: Cats in Art celebrates the beauty of cat by featuring cat art from all over the world from artists past and present.

From Edward Hopper to Édouard Manet, this book features paintings in a wide range of artistic styles. Some of the paintings are whimsical caricatures, others are more traditional, gorgeous renderings of equally gorgeous cats.
