Cats in Art History

The Universal Museum of Art grants us a virtual tour highlighting one of our favorite things -cats!

For the first time ever, 75 works of art from Ancient Egypt to today are reunited around the subject of cats! Big cats, small cats, cuddly cats or playful cats, tiger-cats or kittens; all are waiting for you in an eighteenth century mansion decor. Come and let yourself be swayed by the furry friends and discover: cats hidden in every painting, waiting to be found; moments of pure tenderness captured by artists; cats who have snuck into domestic or even religious scenes; and fabulous accounts of felines with extraordinary powers.

Use your mouse to move around the museum to see various artworks featuring cats, and click on the painting or sculpture to bring up information about it, and from there you can take a closer look. Some art is all about cats, while others contain a cat somewhere, but you have to look for it. The museum gives us clues. Begin your virtual tour here.  -via Nag on the Lake
