Animal Therapy: The Cats of Louis Wain
To coincide with the release of the biopic The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, Bethlem Museum is placing dozens of works on display by an artist and illustrator once considered to be a national treasure. Animal Therapy: The Cats of Louis Wain reintroduces the public to the resplendent work of this lately overlooked figure. It invites viewers to see nature and animals through his eyes, glowing with life and energy, and to rediscover the positive effects of connecting with their living environment.
In tandem with Animal Therapy, The Rules are in your Head by Marie Brenneis continues on display in the Museum’s Boardroom through to 26 March 2022.
To support the exhibition, the Museum’s online shop is selling a range of Louis Wain books and merchandise. Visitors and well-wishers can also directly support the Museum’s important work in mental health promotion.
