Abstract:
Hudibras with his hat in hand approaches a lawyer who sits in an elaborately carved chair on a rise. In front of the lawyer are his two clerks at a low table, at his side, shelves of books and papers. On the right in the foreground is a carved figure of Justice holding scales; the pedestal engraved with the date '1641'. In the background on the left two women stand in the doorway. In the left foreground are two dogs, one of whom watches the action attentively while the other lies with its head turned away.
