Additional Information

Susan Herbert's innovative and witty feline renderings of famous masterpieces have won her a large admiring public. Her first book was The Cats Gallery of Western Art, in which Frans Hals's Laughing Cavalier, da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Botticelli's Birth of Venus, among many other classics of the world's great museums, were presented with cats serving as models. This was followed by a similar work, The Cats History of Western Art, which featured feline versions of thirty-two well-known paintings, including another beloved Botticelli masterpiece, Primavera, a dramatic detail from the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo, and a number of popular Impressionist pictures. As both these books, which appeal to cat lovers of all ages, have been out of print for several years, Thames & Hudson now takes the opportunity to offer them together in a bumper paperback volume that will introduce Herbert's unique paintings to a new generation of book buyers.

Back home, I searched everywhere online for an image of that cat and I finally found it here. Susan Herbert has taken many of the most famous paintings in the history of Western art and replaced the figures with cats. The results are wonderful for cat lovers and a true joy for lovers of both cats and art. I particularly enjoy comparing Herbert's paintings with the originals. Her ability to capture the human figure's expression on the face of a cat is uncanny. The masterpieces include Mona Lisa, a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I, Van Gogh's Self-Portrait after he cut off his ear, and so many more. Susan Herbert is a fantastic artist who also has a deep understanding of our feline friends. I would certainly love this book even if I wasn't familiar with the... Read more
The pictures say it all. If you like cats, art, or "high" art-turned-"pop" culture you will love this. Fortunately my students have all been cat lovers since I got this book and they are crazy about it.
I have seen most of this artwork but not with the Cats! hahaha Very amusing, wish it was still in print and cheaper I would get it for my cat loving friends but am keeping this copy for art loving me.
