Shop interior with figures
Charles Keene (1823 - 1891)
RA Collection: Art
The drawing depicts three women and a man in the distance. A younger woman with a distressed expression on her face, standing behind what might be a shop counter, looks at an older woman in an apron who is turned away from her. Another woman wearing an elegant dress stands behind her as though she is queuing. The doorway is open and outside can be seen the back of a man in top hat and ill-fitting jacket (reminiscent of Walter Sickert's portrait of Jacques-Emile Blanche, ca. 1910, Tate N04912).
The drawing does not have a caption or a title and it is not known whether it was worked up into a print.
