Cats in galleries

Following sillabe’s best seller “Dogs in Galleries”, this book provides an iconographic journey of cats in the Florentine museums, and their alternate fame. Honored by the Egyptians, cats were almost entirely forgotten in Medieval times, when they were associated with witches. While dogs were expanding their presence in the arts, cats had to content themselves with a secondary role. Dedicated to Giulia, “Feline Grand Duchess of Pitti Kigdom”.

A book for cat lovers and museum visitor looking for alternative exhibition itineraries.
