Studies of a Cat by Delacroix
If you've got an animal lover in the house, take her to see the menagerie on view at the Morgan Library & Museum. The institution's newest exhibit explores the ways in which animals have served as inspiration for a breadth of creative types, from composers (Prokofiev) and artists (David Hockney, Albrecht Dürer) to poets (T. S. Eliot) and writers (Jean de Brunhoff, E.B. White). Chockful of prints and drawings, ancient seals, literary manuscripts and books, the show could be the ideal spot for a round of fauna-themed I Spy. Through May 20.
