Abstract:
"Heading to an engraved song. A fat military officer, wearing cocked hat, sword, and boots, stands with an amorous swagger among eleven women; two cling to his shoulders, others raise their arms to attract his attention. Behind, and on the extreme left and right, appear the heads of two men, scowling jealously."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
