Abstract:
"Lord Wycombe, scarcely caricatured, walks to the left, his head in profile, left hand on hip, right on a club-like walking-stick. His coat is curiously cut, his (striped) waistcoat longer and breeches shorter than the contemporary fashion. He wears a neck-cloth and shoes. His gait is slouching and his dress rather slovenly. Clouds form a background."--British Museum online catalogue.
