Susan Herbert: Cats In People's Clothing

Susan Herbert gives both cat lovers and art lovers a witty, humorous, and sometimes, dare I say it, thought provoking look at classic art.

She's a "cat artist" who takes famous paintings and replaces the human characters in the pieces with felines.

The appreciation for artistic works, or should I say the trends in art appreciation, are as finicky as Morris the Cat's palate, but Herbert has built quite a following.

While some may not appreciate the somewhat bizarre look to the feline-inserted paintings, you have to give credit to the artist for some fine and interesting work.

If your first reaction upon seeing these works is, "that's creepy" then I'm with you, but all I can say is try it, you'll like it. Once get over the initial weirdness factor, it's really quite amusing and clever.

With a number of diverse series of paintings under her belt, Herbert has developed a nice fan base. A number of books have been put together, each focusing on a collection of her work. They make great gifts for the cat lover, or grab a couple for yourself to keep yourself amused.

Herbert takes us from Shakespeare Cats to Movie Cats, from Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel to paintings of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, from Medieval Cats to cats in the Victorian era.
