'Arty Cats' is the story of the cat as muse to some of the greatest artists of all time. From Leonardo da Vinci to Andy Warhol, cats have been found to be the inspiration for some of their most famous works. Who would have thought that the inspiration behind Bonnard portraying his wife bathing was his cherished black Tom, or that the Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile was the therapeutic result of stroking a sleepy tabby?
Together with Vicky Cox's inspiring paintings, David Baird's humorous text traces the development of the cat as muse throughout the ages.
