(For I Will Consider) My Cat Jeoffry (detail)

(For I Will Consider) My Cat Jeoffry (detail)

 

My new screen print, created especially for my Wunderkabinett exhibtion in Spitalfields last week-end.

 

It is based on (and features) a poem, commonly called 'For I Will Consider My Cat Jeoffry', by Christopher 'Kit' Smart. It is an excerpt from a longer piece entitled Jubilate Agno ('Rejoice in the Lamb'), written around 1760 whilst Smart was an inmate at St. Luke's Hospital for Lunatics on Old Street, Upper Moorfields, in London.

 

Printed in two colours on high quality Fabriano 5 paper by the Print Block in Whitstable, '(For I Will Consider) My Cat Jeoffry' is a limited edition of 50.

 

The print measures 50 cm wide by 70 cm high (a standard frame size, conveniently) and includes 80 vignettes and 89 cats!
