Acccording to the gallery's webpage, "Tissot's depiction focuses on the view from a dining table out through a window of a riverside London tavern. Here, from one of the jutting bays, other patrons can be seen in an adjacent balcony and below children play on the foreshore of the River Thames." The draughtsmanship here was much admired by the art critic of the Athenaeum when it was shown in the Dudley and Grosvenor Galleries. — Jacqueline Banerjee
