During the 1880s Whistler focused on depicting shop fronts in Chelsea and elsewhere in London; this view of a shop on Cleveland Street (as identified by Thomas Way) is a continuation of this interest.Physical Description
A partial view of a butcher's shop is seen frontally from across the road. To the left is an arched doorway within a pedimented entryway; a woman holding a baby stands silhouetted against the doorway while a little girl sits on the stoop. To the right is an arched shopfront that comprises both the doorway and the window in which hangs two large cuts of meat. The window of the shop is partially screened by an awning the extends before the facade of the building. A dog is seen sitting in front of the shop window.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaWesternRights
