Product Description

About the Author

Chris Beetles has been the main popularizer of Wain's art and has staged yearly exhibitions since 1983. He is now recognized as the world's leading authority on Louis Wain and is regularly approached by museums, auctions and collectors worldwide to adjudicate on the vast number of forgeries coming onto the market; an inevitable consequence of increasing value on the market. A chapter on Wain forgeries will be written. Chris Beetles is an ex-practicing general practitioner specializing in the diseases of the elderly so he is also uniquely qualified to write the special addendum on art and mental illness. A full book list of Wain's published work completes this valuable and indispensible work which will appeal to both specialist collector and cat enthusiast alike.

Format: Hardcover
Have lots of books on Louis Wain so was wondering if this would just be more of the same in a new book. There are the old favourites, yes - but loads of new stuff! Fantastic! Worth every penny; a great new addition for the Louis Wain fan.

This is a most enjoyable book, a must for any new Louis Wain fans. It has details of a wide variety of his work with summaries regarding the pictures. It also gives a good insight into the life of Louis Wain too. A great gift! The only down side was the packaging - on arrival the book fly cover was damaged, but it didn't spoil the book.
