A world of art inhabited entirely by cats is introduced in this book. From the feline Mona Lisa to the white-tailed Botticelli Venus, Susan Herbert is known for her cat characters - her humorous versions of well-known paintings. In this book she explores the art of the Middle Ages. It features resplendent cats dining in medieval banqueting halls; aristocratic cats at a jousting ceremony; and humble cats huddled around a kitchen fire. These costumed cats appear against a backdrop of castles and scenery, and among the medieval illuminations and Book of Hours. The paintings are all based on authentic works of the 13th to the 16th centuries. Other titles by Susan Herbert are: The Cats Gallery of Art, The Cats History of Western Art, Impressionist Cats, and Diary of a Victorian Cat.

The term “Cat Lady” can evoke the image of an unfashionable, unkempt, and slightly unhinged spinster hoarding multiple cats. Cat Lady Chic serves as the antidote to this unflattering point of view, celebrating the Cat Lady with a compilation of artful, playful, and sophisticated images of some of the most renowned, beautiful, and accomplished women in modern history with the cats they love. The volume features a sharp, funny introductory essay on the Cat Lady conundrum along with scores of photo­graphs of felines paired with famous feline fans across a spectrum of backgrounds, including figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Georgia O’Keeffe, Diana Ross, Marilyn Monroe, Zelda Fitzgerald, Lana Del Rey, Lauren Bacall, Joan Jett, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, and more.

“It’s official. That thing that classic art has been missing is a chubby reclining kitty.” —The Huffington Post Internet meme meets classical art in Svetlana Petrova’s brilliant Fat Cat Art. Featuring her twenty-two-pound, ginger-colored cat Zarathustra superimposed onto some of the greatest artworks of all time, Petrova’s paintings are an Internet sensation. Now fans will have the ultimate full-color collection of her work, including several never-before-seen pieces, to savor for themselves or to give as a gift to fellow cat lovers. From competing with Venus’s sexy reclining pose (and almost knocking her off her chaise lounge in the process) in Titian’s Venus of Urbino, to exhibiting complete disdain as he skirts away from God’s pointing finger in Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, Zarathustra single-handedly rewrites art history in the way that only an adorable fat cat can.

This beautifully designed book is filled with illustrations and photographs of the many animals in Picasso's life--those he painted and drew, as well as those he loved. One of the few under-examined aspects of Picasso's life and work was his love of animals. The son of a pigeon breeder and an aficionado of bullfighting, Picasso had an eye trained for capturing an animal's movement, shape, and personality--often with just a single line. Organized around the different types of animals that played a role in the artist's life and body of work--from his beloved dachshund, Lump, to dogs, cats, and doves, among others--each chapter offers personal accounts, amusing anecdotes, and wondrous works of art. The perfect gift for lovers of animals or Picasso's art, this exquisite treasury of expertly rendered creatures is filled with humor, warmth, and the tremendous bonds between man and animal.
