Louis Wain Postcards





Louis Wain was born in 1860 and was to become the most famous cat artist of his time in Edwardian England. He drew many, many cartoons but also real life pictures of cats. He was very famous in the early 1900s. As his mental health failed him his pictures became more and more troubled and strange but still cats played a strong role in them.
Louis Wain died in 1936.
