The Worcester (Massachusetts) Art Museum is fortunate to own this watercolor by Winslow Homer. When you see it, don't you immediately think of the way the sun bleaches out color in that dazzling summery way? And yet against all that fresh air and sunshine-drenched ground and wood, the black kitten stays a solid black, its fur soaking up all that radiance.
Ever touched a black cat in the sun? They're hot.
