”Firmin-Girard enjoyed great popularity at the time the Impressionists were revolting against the highly detailed, academic style that he practiced. However, Firmin-Girard shared the Impressionists’ interest in painting modern life, especially scenes along the River Seine. In this work, Parisians enjoy a Sunday brasserie overlooking the river at Bas-Meudon southwest of Paris. At left, the artist depicted his daughter stroking an appreciative cat as her brother chats with their grandmother…” (from the accompanying tag)
An appreciative cat? I don’t think so… What I see, is a mean character, eyes narrowed, probably plotting its next attack; I can almost hear it hissing and growling at the dog across the street.
Marie-François Firmin-Girard (1838-1921)

If your way finds you on Tybee Island around lunchtime, why not pop by The Crab Shack. They have crab, giant seafood platters, crab, shrimp & crab, some bbq to distract you from all that crab, and an alligator lagoon. Because what could be more appetizing than having lunch in such a charming company?
