Collection of 14 Drawings on the History of Cats
Available From More sellersView all copies of this book
8 loose leaves, folded once to create 32 pages (each page about 7-by-9 inches); contains 14 extraordinary drawings of cats, rendered in bright blue or black ink, frequently in an etched or cross-hatched style reminiscent of woodcuts. With handwritten captions in Russian and Latvian, and dated from 1926-1958. Studies of cats drawn from other works of art, notably plaques and (likely) Egyptian statues. All drawings are remarkably bold and adept, the bright blue in particular lends an air of pop or modern art, while others are more formal or refined. Unique, and simply wonderful.
