Mr. Bloom Bloomsday - June 16th - is an annual celebration among Joyce fans throughout the world, from Fort Lauderdale to Melbourne. It is celebrated in at least sixty countries worldwide, but nowhere so imaginatively, of course, as in Dublin. The novel, Ulysses, by James Joyce recounts the hour-by-hour events of one day in Dublin - June 16, 1904 - as an ordinary Dubliner, Leopold Bloom, wends his way through the urban landscape, the odyssey of a modern-day Ulysses. This painting is from James Joyce’s caricature of Leopold Bloom, drawn in Myron Nutting’s studio in the 1920’s. © Ulysses. The most important novel in English of the 20th Century, the defining image of Dublin, and the novel that altered the direction of American literature. Watercolor on Indian handmade paper. 29 x 21 cm. This image has been chosen for the forthcoming James Joyce Literary Supplement by the Department of English, University of Miami. The original image is available for sale.
