Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas: 'At the Café Châteaudun'
This is one of the earliest of Degas's many café scenes. Two men are seated at a table, examining what appears to be a newspaper; the man on the right holds a magnifying glass and his companion wears a monocle.

There are a number of related sketches in one of Degas's notebooks dating from about 1867 to 1874, now in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris.
