Jane in Catland - ON TEMP. BREAK ADMIN September 27, 2013
Welcome to the Louis Wain's Catland group! This is a group in ode to my favortite artist, Louis Wain! All Wain fans are welcome to join! Post your pictures of Louis Wain & his art (all his art - not solely limited to his cats) and/or your very own original Wain inspired art. The rules here are to post up to 5 pics per day, and no spam, hissing, biting, or scratching! But the most important rule is to have fun :) I hope you enjoy all the photos in this group & get to know other Louis Wain fans...

Group Description

This is a group dedicated to the King of the Cat Artists, Louis Wain. 1860 - 1939

While Louis was most famous for his drawings and paintings of felines, feel free to post photos of other animal artworks of his, also landscapes, and any other art by Louis. As well as your very own Wain inspired art or photography!

To give you a better idea of how the photos of your cats and kits with a Wain feel and look to the picture for this group, here are some photos of cats from members here that have captured the Louis Wain style:

See how the eyes and over-all expression in the photo above is
similar to the eyes in this colored drawing by Louis Wain:

And notice also how the tradmark 'wallpaper' style of Louis Wain's
later works have been captured in the photo below:

In general - all personal cat photos should have features like - big wide eyes, very expressive faces - either smiling or sad/scared - anthro (cats doing something like a human would - like sitting up while watching the TV) also - set against wallpaper backgrounds or carpets or other styles as seen by Wain's work in this group.

"THOSE WITH FEELINGS, WONDROUS KIND, CAN LOVE WITH FELINES EVER BIND"
