Gallerist Chris Beetles tells the artist's story

At the turn of the century, Louis Wain was a household name for his hugely popular drawings of cats in periodicals, on prints and postcards. With the onset of schizophrenia his style became vibrant, more abstract, almost Jazz Age Modern. Gallerist Chris Beetles tells his story.
