Just where did the great painters of modern times get their inspiration? This book argues that this inspiration comes from their cats - for behind every great artist there is usually a rather special cat. This book reveals the moggy muses behind some of the bestknown paintings of this century. For instance, did you know that before painting his "Yellow Chair", van Gogh did "Yellow Chair Being Used as Scratching Post by Black Cat"? Or that Monet found inspiration in watching his cat searching for goldfish underneath those cursed waterlilies? The state of Jackson Pollock's carpet after his poorly trained puss had been let loose on it provided the inspiration for many of his early, lesser known paintings - and indeed many of his later, more famous ones.
