Details

This is a brand new copy of the Louis Wain Biography by Rodney Dale.

Louis Wain was a man who drew cats.

He was born in 1860 and started to draw cats in his early 20's. By the turn of the century, his was a household name for he had created the Louis Wain Cat, a special type of mischievous feline which found universal acclaim.

He was obsessed with drawing cats and when the demand for them eventually diminished he was not able to come to terms with the situation. He had heavy family commitments, but no one would buy his work. His mind failed and he was admitted in poverty to a mental hospital. He died in 1939.

A great account of his rather sad life packed with interesting illustrations.
