Abstract:
"A burlesque of the discovery by Cymon of Iphigenia asleep. A fat country-woman, whose dark skin and coarse features give her a negroid appearance, leans against a sandy bank. A hideous yokel, advancing from the right, stoops towards her, dropping his stick and gaping with delighted surprise."--British Museum online catalogue.
