There is no question about it: Cats’ regal majesty and feline beauty have inspired many an artist throughout history. And it’s not only their physical appeal that has sparked the imagination of painters, sculptors, artisans, writers, and musicians. Cats’ unique nature, mysterious ways, and sometimes quirky traits have also inspired novels, poems, cartoons and one of the longest running shows on Broadway, among many other works. So it’s safe to say that a gift of cat art will be the delight of any cat lover.

But cat art is such a wide field that you would really have to think about which type of cat art gift to give. And just picking any cat art gift will not do. Some considerations to keep in mind during the selection process include: The form of art you want to give (i.e. painting, sculpture), the particular technique you want to focus on (for example, watercolors vs. pastels, if you’re giving a painting), your friend’s personal taste, and of course, a preset spending limit (also called a budget).

These considerations will help you narrow your selection options and choose the perfect gift for your cat-loving friend. If you feel that you need some ideas to inspire you in your search, here’s help. Below you will find six cat art gift ideas, arranged from most expensive to most affordable.


1. Cat Paintings

Many well-known artists have painted cats down through the centuries: From Leonardo Da Vinci and Titian to Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol. I guess they just loved cats’ beautiful shape and had to immortalize it on canvass. Indeed, a feline-inspired painting makes an exquisite cat gift. Of course, some of these works of art come with a hefty price tag. But you can still find gorgeous paintings at affordable prices.

2. Sculptures Of Cats

Somebody once said that if you have a cat you don’t need artwork. And that is true, I think. Still, cat-inspired sculptures can add another level of feline beauty to any spot. Cats are amongst nature’s most beautiful animals. And that beauty lends itself to be reproduced in sculptures. You can find statues for every place in your home: Sophisticated sculptures for the living room, whimsical statuettes for the bedroom, and lovely pieces for the garden.

3. Fine Art Prints Depicting Cats

Can’t afford a fine painting? No problem, you can find a wide array of feline-inspired art prints. The best part is that you can find reproductions of famous works of art portraying cats, like Edouard Manet’s Woman with a Cat (La Femme au chat, c. 1880-1882) and Francisco de Goya’s Don Manuel Osorio de Zuñiga (1787).

4. Cat-Inspired Photographs

I think all cats are photogenic. Most often than not, cats take great pictures. You can find posters based on cat photographs of many different styles: Black and white photographs, breeds, funny and whimsical, inspirational, and more. If you prefer, you can take a picture of your cat-loving friend, place it in a nice frame and give as a gift.

5. Cat Posters

You can find lots of posters depicting cats: Black cats, playful kittens, cats by breed, and more. I’m sure you will find something that will please any cat lover. And you can find posters at affordable prices.

6. Make It Yourself

Are you creative and adventurous? If you are, make the gift yourself! Draw or paint cats. Or take a photograph. Or make a calendar. Thanks to user-friendly software and digital cameras, you can make your own art and personalize your gifts.
