EDITORS COMMENTS
. This etching, titled "Scottifying the Palate" takes us back to 18th-century Scotland, where two literary giants, James Boswell and Dr. Samuel Johnson, embarked on a memorable journey. The image depicts an amusing scene by the Firth of Forth, as Boswell playfully feeds salt fish to his esteemed companion. James Boswell, renowned for writing "The Life of Samuel Johnson" is portrayed here as a mischievous biographer with a penchant for culinary adventures. Meanwhile, Dr. Samuel Johnson appears both amused and slightly hesitant as he indulges in this unconventional treat.
