The Cat: 3500 Years of the Cat in Art is a must-have for art AND cat lovers alike. This sumptuously illustrated book explores the history of cat and human interaction—from Egyptian deification to household pet—through the creative lens of Brueghel, Gauguin, Hogarth, Klee, Picasso, Rembrandt, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Warhol and many more. Immortalizing feline grace, independence and occasional mischief (as the primary subject or as a symbolic aside), this rewarding compendium is accompanied by insightful commentary and organized by thematic chapters.  Hardcover; 288 pages with 260 color illustrations. 10.6"sq.
