So having realised that was a pretty odd conversation, Barney managed to intercept and nicely divert the somewhat erratic 'artist' whose plan was seemingly to attack one of the paintings and thus gain fame.
Remember the one about the cat walking in ink and then over the manuscript?
How about one about a cat peeing on a manuscript? The comedy is the scribe's following illustrations and notes on the page:
Here is nothing missing, but a cat urinated on this during a certain night. Cursed be the pesty cat that urinated over this book during the night in Deventer and because of it many others [other cats] too. And beware well not to leave open books at night where cats can come.
And a lovely little drawing of a cat, having a wee. :)
