■ Utagawa Kuniyoshi "Cats Suggested as the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road"

The title of this piece is a fun spoof on Hiroshige's "Fifty-three Stations on the Tokaido", Hiroshige's impressive series which was the biggest-selling collection in the history of ukiyo-e. The work is spread over three prints, and each of the 55 illustrations of cats is a play on words based on the names of the 55 stations. The cats in this piece are lovingly portrayed, each one capturing a different aspect of a cat's charm in a humorous way with great accuracy and careful observation. Kuniyoshi shows his passion for the cat here!

"Cats Suggested as the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road" is available at Adachi's ukiyo-e online store.
