Artist: James McNeill Whistler
Title: Smith's Yard
Size: 5” x 8”
The Smith’s Yard is a view of the Govier family’s blacksmith shop in Lyme Regis, Dorset, seen from the courtyard. It is one of seven images (cat . Nos 119-25) that Whistler drew upon papier vegetal and sent to the Ways for processing on September 27, 1895. Six of these first Lynne Regis drawings depict the same smithy. In The Smith’s Yard one of the Govier sons and a young apprentice pause from shoeing horses to gaze out toward the artist. With a few concise lines Whistler suggested the rustic character of the yard, framed on the left by a large rain barrel and on the right by a grinding wheel.
