Description of this Book

Art history has been given a fun feline makeover. Discover the basics of important art movements through a host of beautifully illustrated cats, each one inspired by a specific period in art history. From The Surrealist to The Cubist, The Abstract Expressionist to The Ancient Egyptian, these creative cats will introduce you to key themes and provide you with all of the inspiration you need to create your own version. Each arty illustrated cat comes with an overview of the art movement, plus a selection of quirky features you can copy to create your own cat. Accompanied by fun, informative captions, each element - from faces and fur to patterns, shapes and colours - is inspired by an artist relating to the particular movement. More than just a reference book, A History of Art in 21 Cats is perfect for art enthusiasts, drawing beginners and cat lovers alike.

Author's Bio

A graduate of Falmouth University, Nia Gould is a Creative Design Manager and illustrator and runs a small design business from her home in Devon. Her work is inspired by her love of cats as well as the arts, with many illustrations finding their way onto cards, prints, tote bags and enamel pins. The most popular series combines her two passions - a set of observational prints featuring cats posing as famous artists. Her designs are stocked in shops and galleries around the world, including the New Museum in New York, House of Illustration in London and the Gallery of Modern Art, Australia.
