Some famous artists known for their animal-themed artwork include Louis Wain, Walt Disney and Raymond Harris-Ching. Each of these artists was markedly different in his style, as well as subjects.
Louis Wain created images of cats, which as his schizophrenia progressed, became increasingly abstract and colorful.
Walt Disney is best known for his iconic creation of Mickey Mouse. Following his initial success, he branched into animating other cartoon animals, including Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto.
Raymond Harris-Ching's focus was on birds, which first captivated his interest during a school trip to a museum. His early images were drawings of borrowed stuffed birds.
