Cats Pose as Famous Art Portraits

Cats. You either love them or hate them. Recently, some cats have made a bold artistic statement by posing as models from famous paintings from the past 500 years. Works that were stroked by the likes of Rembrandt and Degas or nurtured by the Renaissance period were some of the pieces the felines have chosen to channel.
