Louis Wain
b. 8-5-1860; London
d. 7-4-1939

The artist-illustrator Louis Wain is best remembered for his drawings featuring anthropomorphised large-eyed cats and kittens that were very popular in Victorian England.

Wain attended the West London School of Art, and taught there for several years, before he turned to freelance work of country houses and livestock at agricultural shows.

The cat portraits were inspired by the family cat named Peter who was great comfort for his wife Emily as she suffered with cancer. Wain taught Peter to “wear glasses and pretend to read”, in order to amuse Emily.

Author H. G. Wells said of Wain, “He has made the cat his own. He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look and live like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves.”

Andy Warhol was a successful commerical illustrator who became a leader in the pop art movement as a painter, printmaker, and filmmaker.

His studio during the 1960s was called “The Factory”, an accurate description of the assembly line of silkscreens and lithographs turning out repetitive images of celebrities and Campbell Soup cans “... the way capitalist corporations mass produce consumer goods”.
