Abstract:
An expensively decorated room with a gas chandelier of cut glass is filled with a raffish crowd, eating, drinking, and fighting, and flirting. The selling of shell-fish is a 'specious pretence' for 'costly suppers' in a 'den of depravity'. The center figure, a young man assailed by a woman, appears to be Robert Cruikshank.
