Of all the creatures that inhabit the earth, perhaps none have inspired more artistic contemplation than the feline. Large and small, wild and domestic, lazy and fearsome, cats have captured the imaginations of humanity because of their beauty, grace, and nature.
Like many of his artistic forebears, Walter Anderson found wild and domestic cats to be willing and able subjects. He painted, sculpted, drew, and carved images of cats throughout his life. He also wrote poetry about his feline friends and featured them as main characters in short stories. This exhibition is dedicated to Walter’s love of cats and their frequent, often humorous, presence in his artwork.
