A 20th-century artist, Louis Wain, who was fascinated by cats, painted these pictures over a period of time in which he developed schizophrenia. The pictures mark progressive stages in the illness and exemplify what it does to the victim's perception.
These are pretty much the most amazing paintings in the world to me. I'm not really into paintings but I feel a strong connection to these.
