Description - More Cats Galore: A Second Compendium of Cultured Cats by Susan Herbert
This follow-up to the smash hit Cats Galore dives deeper into the world of Susan Herbert, whose delightful re-imaginings of some of the best-known and best-loved works of art have won her a devoted international following. Herbert's first book, The Cats Gallery of Art, was published in 1990, and since then her work has appeared in numerous books, featuring cats in iconic works of art, as well as scenes from opera, Shakespearean plays and the movies - all with her trademark blend of humour and ability to capture those essential feline characteristics so instantly recognizable to cat lovers everywhere.
In this new compilation, furry felines take over yet more of the world's most famous masterpieces. They crowd into the pages of the 15th-century Tres Riches Heures, zoom through the air as cherubic blindfolded Cupids in Renaissance masterworks, and pose stiffly in royal portraits, before loosening things up in the 19th century as artists take paint and palette out into the countryside. Ranging from medieval illuminated manuscripts to Old Master stalwarts such as Rembrandt and Vermeer, through to the likes of Monet and Rossetti, this second helping of cats in art will delight fans everywhere of a beloved artist.
