“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” Leonardo da Vinci

This lecture takes a look at cats in art as part of our series of animals in art.

Some have said "cats’ rule" As one observer noted “In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.” This lecture will explore how we people have depicted our felines though the ages.
