Fine and Not-So-Fine Dining.

Srule10.gif - 377 Bytes

Come! I wish you bon appétit!
Herein lies a visual treat:
Many an etching and drypoint
In which there's never a dry pint:
Bring out the bottle, pour a glass, Doubtless, you'll see just what you want
In a tavern or restaurant,
With fine or not-so-fine dining
Where the sun - or moon - is shining.
So, step right up and don't delay,
Wear casual or fine array,
Workday clothes or bib and tucker,
Meet your friends for lunch or supper
This afternoon or end of day
At a pub or ritzy café,
A place of good food, wine, and cheer,
A celestial atmosphere.
So, raise a glass, shout "Hip Hooray,
Three Cheers, Skøl, À votre santé!

Whistler visited London frequently from 1855 to 1858, mainly to see his half-sister Deborah, who had married the artist Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910), and her family. These visits provided the subjects for more of his etchings from this time and prepared the way for his move to London in 1859.

This still-life study, which stands alone in Whistler's etched oeuvre, was made shortly after his return to London from Paris upon the completion of the French Set or Douze eaux-fortes d'après Nature. Whistler and his brother-in-law worked closely for several months during this time at the latter's house on Sloane Street, London, where Haden had installed his own etching press.
