Tashkent-based artist Eldar Zakirov created a series of digitally painted cat portraits showing felines dressed as various royalties. The project was commissioned by the Hermitage Magazine, giving the airy-looking pets the Hermitage Cats name. All of the details, the fabrics of the clothing and the background were chosen really carefully, and represent the era with great accuracy – you might even think you’re actually looking at photographs of dressed up cats! What do think of these dashing portraits?
