Will make you smile 28 Aug. 2006
By Anne McCoy - Published on
Delightful! The premise is that a collection of paintings was donated to the Philip Wood Gallery of Nonprimate Art with the stipulation that all of the paintings were to be kept together. When the author, a curator, went to pick up the collection, he found that each painting was a portrait of a cat. None of the paintings were signed, but the styles were recognizable: Magritte, Matisse, Christo, O'Keefe, Miro, Mondrian, Lichtenstein, Hopper, Pollock, Warhol. Each of these artists did in fact own a cat; pictures and brief bios of the kitties are included. If you love cats and/or modern art, this book will delight you.
A Fab Find! 23 Sept. 2014
By SYBIL BLAZEJ-YEE - Published on
A fabulous find for any feline and art aficionado, both fun and funny with some variations on a theme being better than the original.
