The World of Feline Art
The World of Feline Art

The 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.

Dealing With Fake Works
With 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.

The Role of the Feline Art Critic
The 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.

Methods for testing Feline Creative Intelligence
The 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.

Feline Art Galleries
When 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.

Why Cats Paint — a Documentry
The Museum of Non-Primate Art is sponsoring the production of a documentary on prominant cat artists and their work.
