The Dining Room by Chevallier Tayler, so reminiscent of Tissot, was sold at auction a few years ago and  was going to be in the Chris Beetles Summer Show.  They write: ‘The artist beautifully captures a sense of light suggestive of a coastal location, perhaps the hotel at which Tayler stayed at Boulogne. That light penetrates semi-transparent curtains, illuminates the whiteness of cloth and napkin and reflects off the polished surfaces of china, glass and metal, the linoleum floor and even the shoes of the most prominent diner.’ Tayler is a great discovery, a neglected artist indeed.
