“Behind every great woman there is a great cat” – We thought this posing to the incredibly talented girl, Marie-Denise Villers:
It was a lot of historical injustice around this painting: it was attributed to Jacques-Louis David at the time when humans thought that a woman is incapable to create such a brilliant scene. Later it was realized to be Villers’ work, maybe even a selfie of the artist!
But of course, they cut the cat off, because these pretending to be high-browed art-critics thought that a selfie with a cat is mere kitcsh!
You can see this reduced version at the Metropolitan Museum:
But today the historical justice won!
Dear ladies, be creative, beloved and haappy, win everywhere, and, we, cats, will support you anytime!
Happy International Women’s Day!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
