More Than… MILLIONS OF CATS

Millions of Cats Book Cover by Wanda Gag

Beyond her renowned children’s book “Millions of Cats”, Wanda Gág’s artistic legacy continues to inspire artists and art enthusiasts internationally, and, thus, she remains a prominent figure in the global art world. Her artworks have been showcased in prestigious institutions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the British Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), reflecting her compassionate portrayal of everyday life.

The House is a Work of Art

The Wanda Gag House is not only a historical landmark but also a work of art in itself. As visitors explore the restored two-and-a-half-story house, they can appreciate how the Anton Gag’s architecture harmonizes with the family’s innovative and artistic sensibilities. The house itself becomes a canvas that showcases the artistic inspiration and heritage that shaped the renowned illustrator and author.

Visiting the Wanda Gag House is not only an opportunity to learn about Wanda Gág’s artistic journey but also to experience a piece of living art that embodies the Gag family’s rich creative heritage.
