20TH CENTURY POP CULTURE WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME
The Cat’s impact on 20th century popular culture — and these images in particular — could never have been predicted and cannot be underestimated. LIFE Books named Dr. Seuss one of the “100 People Who Changed The World,” joining the likes of Picasso, Einstein, Shakespeare, and da Vinci in that regard.
The Cat’s Debut was our first introduction to the character and it propelled Dr. Seuss to this status. During a recent interview with The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection Publisher, Robert Chase, he noted:
“These may be the most important “Cat” images Dr. Seuss ever created and, as such, may be the most important works we have ever released within the canon of Seuss’s work.”
