Courtly Cats Painted As Classical Oil Paintings

The Hermitage Court Chamber Herald Cat

Takshent, Uzbeskitan-based illustrator Eldar Zakirov has created a series of courtly cat paintings for Russian magazine Hermitage.

Although stylized as highly-realistic looking oil paintings, the portraits are actually digitally created.

Garbed in formal, court attire, the Zakirov’s cats manage to impose an air of regality, no doubt helped by their confident nature.
