I stumbled upon this colorful drawing and was intrigued to learn more. I soon discovered that the Artist's name is Louis Wain.Wain was an English artist who lived in the late 1800s and early half of the 1900s. He is best known for his numerous drawings and paintings of Cats.
The most interesting tidbit I uncovered about Wain was that later in his life he suffered from schizophrenia. Much of his most memorable (and colorful) work was done whilst he was confined to a number of different metal asylums. Stranger still, there is a theory that Wain had toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that can be contracted from cats and that this infection can be linked to causing schizophrenia in humans. rather poetic, non?
