go fish

thanks wikimedia commons {PD-old-100}
When a print has been captured on silk, like this one, think how the water in the bowl and the fish must lightly glisten.  This is a work by the Japanese artist Isoda Koryusai (active 1766-1788), known primarily for his portraits of beauties - human ones.  This cat is a beauty too with its silver tabby markings, set off with a bow round its neck.  But who would leave a pot of goldfish on the floor and not expect kitty to get into it?

Learn a little more about Koryusai here.
