Artist Susan Herbert has mixed her love for cats and historic paintings in her latest series. Following her work that transformed cats into iconic Shakespearean characters, this series places beautiful felines in some of the world's most legendary artwork.

While cats have often been the muses to many great artists, Herbert has applied her creative touch to already finished pieces to create something new, quirky and contemporary. Working with such historic paintings as the Girl with a Pearl Earring, the Mona Lisa and a painting of The Sound of Music's Baronin Maria von Trapp running through the valley, Herbert was able to recreate each legendary piece by replacing its main characters with a cat.

Herbert's work is an amalgamation of historic art and cats, something most won't see every day.
