Louis Wain Postcards


Louis Wain (1860-1939) was an English artist best known for his drawings, which consistently featured anthro pomorphised large-eyed cats and kittens.

Wain's cats walk upright, smile broadly, use other exaggerated facial expressions, and wear sophisticated contemporary clothing. Wain's illustrations showed cats playing musical instruments, serving tea, playing cards, fishing, smoking, and enjoying a night at the opera.

In his later years he suffered from schizophrenia, which, according to some psychologists, can be seen in his works.
