This wonderful etching depicts a man punting down what is most likely the river Thames. A punt is a flat bottomed boat with a square-cut bow, which is propelled through the water by using a large pole to push off of the river bottom, generally in small rivers or shallow waters. During Whistler’s time punts were used mainly for fowling, or ‘bird catching’ on the river.
