ART CAT: FINE FELINES OF THE ART WORLD
(Smith Street £12.99, 96pp)
CATS have been an inspiration for art from the times of the pharaohs to present-day viral internet meme sensations. Their aloof and mischievous personalities and lithe, elegant movements make them perfect muses for curious artists. This beautiful and eclectic collection celebrates all things feline in art, from Japanese woodblock prints of the Edo period and the stunning oil paintings of the Dutch masters, to Manet, Klee and Renoir. This is a timeless record of why cats are so loved and will continue to be documented long into the future.
