Cat: Wild Cats and Pampered Pets
Andrew EdneyISBN: 978-3-8228-6516-3; 3822865168;
From tame tabby to puma, from pussy cat to ocelot, the ten chapters of this picture book are devoted entirely to a species with a mind of its own, slender beasts of shimmering gracefulness and supple elegance, who have long been a favourite motif in the fine arts. Solitary or socializing cats, cats at play or catching mice: Around 400 works by renowned artists, interlaced with plenteous literary quotes, present cats of the world through the ages - from bronze statues fashioned thousands of years ago, to the feline beauties of Leonardo da Vinci and Diirer, to David Hockney's thoroughly modern kitty.
