My current work deals a lot with Continuous learning journey for adult particularly in art, ensuring the philosophical narrative of the exhibition accessible to general public. It’s been a great pleasure to read through the curator’s thematic thesis and researching about the artists presented in the exhibition that I realised Cat has great impact in the history of Art!
Artist like Tsuguharu Foujita from early 20s who love to paint his model with cat.
Art book such as “The Book of the Cat” dated in 1903, by Mabel Humphrey and Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall, illustrated by Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall documented the earlier century cat in Arts, it’s interesting to see the subject matter focus more on cat. I was lucky to find the online copy of the book to read, it’s also a great book to share with the young ones, to appreciate cats. click here to read the book online. and also, link to rare books and special collections of children’s literature
of course, there are cat incorporate to the old master’s work like Fat Cat Series, genius work!
I just love what I am doing now while connecting both my interests into one. Cat & Art do exist!
