Incredible Cat Art from the Past and Present

According to the Lunar Calendar, it may be the Year of the Dog, but here at CatCon HQ, it’s always the Year of the Cat! Our sister project Cat Art Show  was helpful in combing through the best  history books and notable artworks to put together a selection of some of our favorite cat-centric art of all time! Which ones speak to you?
