"It's official. That thing that classic art has been missing is a chubby reclining kitty." - The Huffington Post Internet meme meets classical art in Svetlana Petrova's brilliant Fat Cat Art . Featuring her twenty-two-pound, ginger-colored cat Zarathustra superimposed onto some of the greatest artworks of all time, Petrova's paintings are an Internet sensation. Now fans will have the ultimate full-color collection of her work, including several never-before-seen pieces, to savor for themselves or to give as a gift to fellow cat lovers. From competing with Venus's sexy reclining pose (and almost knocking her off her chaise lounge in the process) in Titian's Venus of Urbino , to exhibiting complete disdain as he skirts away from God's pointing finger in Michelangelo's Creation of Adam , Zarathustra single-handedly rewrites art history in the way that only an adorable fat cat can.
