Or that Monet found inspiration in watching his cat searching for goldfish underneath those cursed waterlilies? The state of Jackson Pollock's carpet after his poorly trained puss had been let loose on it provided the inspiration for many of his early, lesser known paintings - and indeed many of his later, more famous ones.  £5.00
