Cats in Art, Boxed Note Cards

About the Artist

Contemporary artist Susan Herbert (1945–2014) is famed for her witty anthropomorphic art that placed cats and other animals as the protagonists in Old Master, Shakespearean, and operatic settings. Herbert studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford, and worked for the English National Opera and the Theatre Royal in London before developing her signature style of parodying Western culture imagery, including the long traditions of painting, theater, opera and ballet, and the newer art of cinema. She exhibited frequently and published many books: The Cats Gallery of Art (1990); The Diary of a Victorian Cat, with text by Stanley Baron (1991); Impressionist Cats (1992); The Cats History of Western Art, with commentaries by Genevieve McCahen (1994); Medieval Cats (1995); Shakespeare Cats (1996); Opera Cats (1997); Pre-Raphaelite Cats (1999), The Cats Gallery of Western Art (2002, a compilation of 1990 & 1994 volumes); Movie Cats (2006).
