This book gives a small glimpse of Gustav Klimt's life as an artist. His cat, Katze, takes us on a journey through Klimit's studio, trips to museums and trips to Italy. Klimt and His Cat is an informative book about the artist who lived between 1862-1918. It even has a mini gallery of his paintings. Leggi tutto
...Gustav is messy! Look at all the sketches he throws about the room. "Katze," he says, catching me staring at the clutter, "painting people requires a great deal of practice!" I love it when a book about an artist emphasizes the hard work and long hours it takes to achieve success! Lush illustratio Leggi tutto
This story was interesting to me because it taught me about an artist whose work I recognized, but whose life I knew very little about. Written from the perspective of one of Klimt's cats, it details life in his studio as well as his work in Italy. The illustrations are incredibly beautiful and there Leggi tutto
First, this book was stunningly beautiful. I had a hard time reading it because I was so enthralled with the illustrations. This was also a wonderful story. My problem with it is one that I have with many of MY favorite children's books, which do not usually translate to being favorites of CHILDREN. Leggi tutto

This is a shame as the nudity was not really necessary to presen Leggi tutto
I saw this book at a gift shop outside a recent Klimt/Rodin exhibition. The illustrations by Octavia Monaco are wonderful in her interpretation of Klimt's style. The story was so-so, and that is the reason for the rating. The printing of the book especially the pages are of excellent quality for thi Leggi tutto
Gustav Kilmt's cat tells the story of living with the famous italian artist. For an elementary library the book may present little problems due to some nudity in the pictures. The pictures are beautiful, but kids are kids
Boas ilustrações a acompanhar um texto talvez demasiado simplista sobre a vida de Gustav Klimt. Bem... Eu sei que se trata de um livro infantil! Enfim, como gostei do conceito artístico das autoras, dou-lhe 4 estrelas!
