Aside from being world-famous artists, what's one thing Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Frida Kahlo had in common? They were crazy about cats. At one point, Andy Warhol had 25 cats living in his apartment; they were all named Sam. Controversial contemporary artist Ai Weiwei shares his Beijing studio with 45 cats, one of whom can open doors!

Artists and Their Cats gathers photographs of fifty famous artists with their beloved feline friends and offers behind-the-scenes stories of their relationships. From Salvador Dali’s pet ocelot Babou to John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s menagerie of cats including Salt (who was black) and Pepper (who was white), this charming little book reveals many an endearing friendship—and reveals the personality traits often shared between the daringly creative souls among us and the animals best known for their independent spirits.
