who needs Rembrandt when you’ve got a saucy little tabby? In the Renaissance, you needed to have years of formal training in painting or sculpting to be considered one of the masters. Now, all you need is a cat, a camera and a decent internet connection. Here’s a collection of pretty remarkable recreations of cats as famous works of art. More than anything, this just makes me want to go pull my old Far Side: Wiener Dog Art book of the shelf.

Here’s a list of all the paintings that these cute little cats are imitating.
