Picks and Pans Review: Metropolitan Cats
by John P. O'Neill
Artists, among other humans, have always been fascinated by cats, as is amply demonstrated by this collection of works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Annotated only sparingly by O'Neill, the Metropolitan's publications editor, it runs from an Egyptian wall painting dating from about 1300 B.C. to an oil by the American Will Barnet from 1965. The artists represented include Renoir, Manet, Goya, Toulouse-Lautrec and Calder. This is the sort of book that makes cat fanciers purr, roll over and spend $25. (Abrams)
