Women with cat on an engawa by a goldfish pond

Identifier: 1851 Kuniyoshi album trip 12
Description:

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston refers to this triptych as "Women on Palace Veranda at Night" or 夜の縁側. They may be the only institution that uses this title. Besides, this composition lacks a title cartouche. Perhaps this is why the British Museum does not even bother to give it a title.

Kuniyoshi is often identified as the artist who portrayed cats in his prints more than anyone else did. This is so here, too. Notice the woman standing on the left is holding a cat.
