Cats in Art: Apparition of the Monstrous Cat (Kuniyoshi)

From my continuing weekly Sunday series of cats in art. I'm using some ideas from the coffee table book, The Cat in Art, by Stefano Zuffi.

On 2 September I used a Utagawa Kuniyoshi image and will continue with several more for the month of September.

Image credit WikimediaApparition of the Monstrous Cat, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, early to mid 1800s.

Since this is not an image from the Zuffi book, I have no comments to comment upon, so I get to be the art critic.
I LOVE this painting title!  The words "apparition" and "monstrous" immediately conjure up images--these are active words that engage teh viewer.
