- Object: Gouter des Anglais
Two pretty young Englishwomen (left) sit at a marble-topped table with a little girl between them who is eating an ice. Facing them is a clumsy-looking Englishman who gorges an ice, holding up the glass to his mouth, elbow on table; in his 1eft hand is a small newspaper probably 'Galignani's Messenger', on a stick. He looks down, but presses, one foot on the silk boot of the lady opposite. A waiter, looking much better bred than the Englishman, approaches (right) with more ices. 1815
