Portraits of 50 (51) Artists and Their Cats

Karel died yesterday and Sparky a few years earlier

Editor Alison Nastasi writes in the book’s introduction, “Many artists buck notions of a stereotypical temperament, but researchers have long speculated that creative individuals share common attributes - which mirror those of cats.” More than 50 pairs are highlighted throughout the book - cats perched on laps, desks, and even atop heads. Included in the cat compendium is everyone from Basquiat to Matisse with images of Picasso and Georgia O’Keeffe in-between. Salvador Dali himself graces the cover with cane and noted Colombian ocelot Babou. Note Dolf and Patia’s cats on TPG Post stamps 2003. LINK Artists and Their Cats
