Art HistorySince at least ancient Egypt, domestic cats have served a variety of functions from companionship to pest control; they have been worshiped as idols and vilified as witches. Throughout their long history, cats have been favorite subjects for artists throughout the world. They are figures in oil paintings by both great masters and unknown artists, in prints, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, and textiles. While their general behavior and spirit have remained a constant, the eyes of individual artists and the demands of different traditions and mediums have created a diverse, and often entertaining, variety of representations.
