Abstract:
"George III (three-quarter length) stands in profile to the left, nearsightedly examining an oval miniature of Oliver Cromwell by the light of a candle held in his left hand. The half length, looking to the right, in armour, probably derives from the pl. after Cooper in Mechell's ed. of Rapin's 'History', 1733. The candlestick is of massive plate holding a candle-end supported on a save-all (cf. BMSat 8091). The King is only slightly caricatured, but his receding forehead and chin and open mouth are exaggerated."--British Museum online catalogue.
