History of Feline Art
The discovery in 1990 of
the c.3000 BC Aperia Cats, Etak and Tikk, with their painted scrolls,
was the first conclusive evidence that cat-marking behavior was known
and valued by the ancient Egyptians.
With Fake Works
the growing popularity of cat art and the consequent rapid rise in prices
being paid for cat paintings of all descriptions, it is not surprising
that a certain number of unscrupulous people have attempted to fake feline
works of art in order to line their pockets.
Role of the Feline Art Critic
Museum of Non-Primate Art, along with galleries devoted to the curation,
preservation and exhibition of cat works, are constantly on the lookout
for people who are able to provide interesting and meaningful interpretations
of feline creativity.

Museum of Non-Primate Art has recently introduced a set of 18 pictorial
cards which have been specially designed by their animal psychologist
to enable people to test their cat's creative potential.
the Philip Wood Gallery in Berkeley, California opened its doors in the
fall of 1994 it had on show the first international exhibition of paintings
and works created by cats ‹ complete with Artist in Residence, Buster.
