This etching was for Bellany?s second wife, Juliet. However, the same year it was made Juliet died. The following year, Bellany created another etching, this time titled `Capercaillie Sings its Lament? a melancholic lament over Juliet?s death. The contrast between the two is striking. This work is jovial with the artist depicting himself as a capercaillie playing the piano, with a glass of wine and cigarette perched on top. The panel down the right hand side, a device Bellany was employing in his paintings, shows a portrait of Juliet. This etching belongs to a series of prints that principally belong to the period from 1982-6. It demonstrates a bolder, more definitive line than his earlier etchings.
