Great thread. I'm doing a little more reading on this for sure. So far, some think that he may have had Aspergers (sp.) syndrome. Coming down with schizophrenia at a late age is rare, but I suspect the same for aspergers. Either way, the are records of his personality change. Quite interesting indeed. :cheers:

Louis Wain was a successful English artist who began to paint cats exclusively, after extensively painting his dying wife’s cat. He then made a living on children’s books and illustrations of anthropomorphic cats often parodying everyday life. After about 30 years he began to suffer from schizophrenia, theorized to be precipitated by toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that can be contracted from cats. After he became too paranoid and violent for his sisters to care for, he was institutionalized at the relatively pleasant Napsbury Hospital , with a garden and colony of cats. Over the next 15 years, he continued to paint cats in increasingly psychedelic depictions.
