About this artwork

Sunghrie was the name of one of Barns-Graham’s Siamese cats. Ann Gunn notes in her Catalogue of Barns-Graham’s prints that the artist also thought it was the name of a Tibetan River. She was very interested in Tibet and Buddhism, though the name more likely refers to the Sunghari or Songhua River in northeast China.
