Abstract:
"Louis XVIII sits squarely in an arm-chair, head turned slightly to the right, with a satisfied and truculent smile. In his left hand he holds a wine-glass in which kneels a tiny screaming Napoleon, submerged to the waist, with both arms raised above his head. His left foot rests regally upon a cushion, but the slashed shoe indicates that this is on account of gout. He wears dress of ancien reĢgime type, with the ribbon and star of St. Louis. At his side (right) is a cloth-covered table on which stands a bottle of wine."--British Museum online catalogue.
