Goodreads Synopsis:

Art history gets a fun feline makeover with 21 purr-fectly cultured cats in the styles of ancient and modern masters.

Become litter-ate in the basics of important art movements through a host of beautifully illustrated cats, each one inspired by a specific period in art hiss-tory: Surrealism, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, Ancient Egyptian (of course), and many more. From Claude Meow-net to Jackson Paw-llock, these creative cats will introduce you to key themes and artists you won’t soon fur-get. Purr-haps even inspiring you to make your own version!

Review:

This book details different types of art, starting with Egyptian art and ending with modern street artists. Each section had an illustration of a cat, done in that particular style. Then, it broke down the image to show what each detail represents in terms of that art style.

This was a very entertaining book. I loved the pictures of the cats! I also learned a lot about those different art styles.

I highly recommend this book for art and cat lovers!

Thank you Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
