THE DIVINE CAT
THROUGH A JAPANESE ARTIST’S WINDOW
A cat is only technically an animal, being divine.
Robert Wilson Lynd
Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of the giants of ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”), immortalizing everyday life during the Edo period. A highly prolific artist, his series of woodblock prints take 21st century audiences on a journey into long ago Japan, such as Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido and 100 Famous Views of Edo which includes Asakusa Ricefields and Torinomachi Festival above.
Irish writer and editor, Robert Wilson Lynd (1879-1949) was also a dedicated Irish patriot and advocate of the Gaelic language.
