Cats Galore: A Compendium of Cultured Cats shows Susan Herbert's delightful feline reimaginings of famous scenes from art, theatre, opera and film which have won her a devoted following. This unprecedented new compilation of her paintings provides an irresistible introduction to her world of cats, featuring previously unpublished images as well as a wide selection of her best-loved pieces.
Paintings ranging from Botticelli's Birth of Venus to the best-loved works of the Impressionists and Pre-Raphaelites are rendered with loving attention to detail. Then an array of cat characters take the starring roles in the plays of Shakespeare as well as comic and tragic operas. The movies also provide a variety of instantly recognizable settings, with cat lookalikes of everyone from Mae West to Lawrence of Arabia. These clever and charming kitties will make an ideal gift for cat-loving culture buffs and cultured cat-lovers everywhere.
