In Cats Reigning Over Classic Art Pieces, A Fat Cat Made Mona Lisa Smile
By Syafiqah Omar, 20 Jan 2012
Russian site “Great Artists’ Mews” curates images of cats reigning over classic and modern art pieces.
The site about art, created for “art-loving cats”, features ‘Zarathustra’: the ‘Suprematist’ cat that weighs 10 kilograms of “pure undisturbed joy” as muse for artists.
According to the site’s owners, Mona Lisa is smiling as she is cradling the cat, but Leonardo had to paint it out because “he was afraid of the reaction of the art criticists and gallerists who normally treated the pictures with cats as not serious”.
The furball’s main passion is sitting for great artists as “only great artists can appreciate [Zarathustra’s] generous body and sublime soul”.
More feline frenzy is expected from this site.
