Abstract:
"Fox stands full-face, hands on hips, legs astride, looking arrogantly to the right. He wears a looped hat with large ostrich feathers, long loose coat with a lace collar and long revers over a tunic with a sash which defines his vast paunch. Tunic and coat have embroidered borders. The hat and coat are black, the tunic, stockings, lining and revers of the coat are red, which is the predominating colour. On the carpet is a design of the royal arms; he straddles across them, his feet planted on lion and unicorn."--British Museum online catalogue.
