At Dinner

Thomas Rowlandson British

Not on view

A man wearing a white wig, a jacket and ruffled cuffs bends over a table to eat with a knife and fork. At right is a roast chicken on a platter, with two other dishes to either side. A standing servant pours a glass of wine from a carafe, and a dog sits on its hind legs to smell the food at lower right. One of a series that Rowlandson made around the same time, titled: "Waiting for Dinner," "At Dinner," "After Dinner," and "Preparing for Supper."
