THE MOSCOW CAT MUSEUM AND THE INTERGALLERY PRESENTS
AN EXCLUSIVE EXHIBITION PROGRAMME "CAT'S EYE"
This exhibition is composed of the works of artists, all those who explored one of the most interesting and fascinating themes in Art - THE CAT.
Quite a few artists of the past and present drew and are still drawing their inspiration from this mysterious and graceful animal.
The first drawings and statues devoted to the Cat date back to ancient times. In Turkey, not far from the settlement Hutsilar there were found the statuettes depicting a woman playing with cats. They were created by an unknown master in the 6 century B.C. Cats have always
attracted artists by their love of freedom, by their independence, gracefulness and physical perfection. It seems they possess some inner magic power, which is still a mystery for people.
The Cat's nature has always been a challenge for everyone who is trying to give his own interpretation of the Cat's character and to penetrate into the secrets of this remarkable and charming animal.
In the works of Vitto Pizanello,Ieronim Bosch, Albreht Durer, Paul Devos, Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinchi, Rubens, D. Velasques, E.Manet, A.Renoir, Picasso, Shagal, M. Beckmann, P. Klee - the list can be almost endless - the cat has found it's own place of honour.
Some of the artists, such as G. Mind, L. Wain and G. Ronner, devoted their whole attention to the phenomenon of the Cat and others turn to this theme only occasionally. But the most important thing for us is that the Cat's theme exists in Art. It has been there for a long time and new generations of artists are drawn to this subject.
We, the organizers of the exhibition programme "CAT'S EYE", invite all those who love cats to the exposition which includes the best works that have been collected for the present moment. Our programme is a long term programme. We will show the series of exhibitions in Russia and abroad.
We are still selecting works for our exhibition. We are open for new suggestions and ideas. We are interested in cooperation. We invite artists, musicians, men of letters, different firms and organizations all those who are interested in Cats to take part in the programme "CAT'S EYE".
