The portraits of Elizabeth Robins Pennell and her husband Joseph were drawn--one each time--during afternoon visits to the Pennell's house. The one of Elizabeth was in particular considered a success. Whistler's fascination with fire-lit subjects such as forges, furnaces, etc. is here extended to portraiture.
