Author Alison Nastasi has just released her latest book, Artists and Their Cats, which features over 50 legendary creatives and the stories behind their feline friendships.

Among many iconic artists, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Frida Kahlo are all known to have had kitty accomplices. Having lived with many cats throughout his life, Picasso even portrayed them in his many of his paintings, including Woman with Cat (1900) and Chat et homard (Cat and Lobster, 1965). Warhol even published a book of cat drawings titled 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy and Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace (1940) features a black cat on her shoulder.
