Gottfried Mind - Autistic Savant - Der katzen Raphael

Born November 17, 1768, in Bern, Switzerland, Gottfried Mind was a autistic-savant who specialized in drawing cats; befittingly named "Der Katzen Raphael" (The Raphael of Cats).

Gottfried Mind was sent to an art academy at the early age of 8 years old.  Where he came under tutelage of the artist Sigmund Heisenberg.   The story goes that while Heisenberg was drawing a cat Mind blurted out, "That is no cat!!".  Undoubtedly annoyed, Heisenburg sent Mind to the corner and incite he do better; the rest, as they say, is history.
