Abstract:
"The Prince stands with folded arms, in the corner of a room, gazing up at a three-quarter length portrait of Lady Jersey as a pretty young woman; she looks down at him alluringly. The portrait hangs over the chimney-piece (right), a fire burns in the grate. From his right hand dangles disregarded an oval miniature of the Princess of Brunswick. Beside the Prince, who turns his back on him, stands a grotesque German courier, who holds up a tiny pair of stockings on the feet of which are shoes. The German has moustaches, a pigtail queue reaching to the ground, he wears spurred top-boots and holds a glove; he gapes with astonishment at the portrait. On the two walls other pictures are arranged in two rows, the lower part only of the upper row being visible. These are (above): 'Pretty Millener', a reclining figure; 'Portrait of a Lady & Child', a pregnant lady leads a child; 'Mrs Crouch' (three-quarter length). Below, 'Mrs Robinson' (three-quarter length); 'Florizel & Perdita', the pair with arms entwined, the King and (?) Queen crouch behind a tree to spy on them; 'Fitsherbet' [sic], who stands, looking to the left, holding a rosary."--British Museum online catalogue.
