The setting for this painting is probably Chantrey’s studio in Pimlico. In the centre, the sculptor’s dog 'Mustard', given to Chantrey by his friend Walter Scott, diligently protects his master’s work from the cat peeping out of the drawer. In the  background is a bust of Scott, who commended Chantrey for producing works that were ‘as like the original subjects as marble can do to flesh & blood’.
