Cats have been depicted in art throughout the ages. Artists from ancient cultures in Egypt, China and Japan created images to honor these sacred animals. Later, in 19th century European art, the feline form was used to convey notions of solitude and tranquility and sometimes mischievousness. Now, in the post-modern, digital world, cats are seemingly more popular than ever. The DIA Shop has put together a small assortment of gifts for those who love art and cats, natural companions.
