Abstract:
"Whole length portrait of a man walking (right to left) with a mincing gait, left toe turned out. He looks through an eye-glass with a frowning grimace. His left hand, holding a bludgeon, is on his hip. His hair is cropped and he has side-whiskers, and is dressed in the manner adopted by the rakes and bloods of 1791, wearing a high-crowned hat, a waistcoat with a high collar at the back; his coat is slipped off his shoulder, showing the upper part of his shirt-sleeve. He wears long breeches or pantaloons and very short top-boots, see BMSat 8040, &c. In the background is a piece of water, trees, and buildings. He resembles Lord Barrymore. In the background is indicated a house (right) with a park wall and trees reflected in water."--British Museum online catalogue.
