Top 10 – Greatest Cat Paintings

Well, I knew you just had to click onto this! Couldn’t resist …Right!!!

This week Artlyst features some of the greatest paintings (and other works of art) depicting cats and all by famous artists!!!  MEEEEOOOOWWWW!!!!

During the 19th century, French artists featured cats in many of their works. Manet, Tissot and Delacroix used them as subject matter, which carried on to Renoir, Picasso and Matisse depicting these adorable fur balls. Here are some of the best….

Photo (above): In 1941, American photographer Philippe Halsman met the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí in New York City and they began to collaborate in the late 1940s. The 1948 work Dali Atomicus explores the idea of suspension, depicting three cats flying, water thrown from a bucket, an easel, a footstool and Salvador Dalí all seemingly suspended in mid-air. Would they get away with this sort of animal cruelty these days? I very much doubt It!!!!
