DESCRIPTION
Follow me into Gustav's studio -- it is alive with color! Look at the paintbrushes, the reds and blues and colorful hues that spill onto the table. Smell the scent of paint, of oil, of canvas. . .
Katze, the loyal cat of Gustav Klimt, takes readers on an exciting journey into the world of the famous Viennese painter. From distracting Gustav's models to tagging along with Gustav on vacations, Katze always provides keen insight about the artist's work and thoughts.

Enchanting illustrations, suggestive of Gustav Klimt's own style and enlivened by the lovable and curious Katze, make Klimt and His Cat a book for readers of all ages. This book not only teaches about the artwork of the Secessionist artist, but also suggests the importance of hard work, dedication, and being true to oneself.

REVIEWS
Kirkus Reviews
"This quirky distillation of Klimt's essence is particularly notable for its luminous, gold-leafed multimedia paintings that effectively evoke the Viennese Secessionist painter's individualistic style. . . . Monaco's illustrations are so unique that libraries with strong artistic picture-book collections won't want to pass this by."
Publishers Weekly
"The depiction of an artist to whom work is more important than family, wealth, or recognition, comes through with force ? and with great charm."
