A carnivalesque scene making fun of Russia’s emperors and empresses. The caption above the cat reads: “The Cat of Kazan, the Mind of Astrakhan, the Wisdom of Siberia” (parodying the elaborate title of the Russian leader). A so-called Lubok print from the collection of Dmitriĭ Aleksandrovich Rovinskiĭ (1824-1895). (Source: New York Public Library).
