"A satire on costume, showing the unsuitability of modern dress to the minuet. A grotesque man bends towards his partner, taking her left hand in his right. The other guests stand or sit. He has a large moustache, a shock of hair, high shirt-collar, short-waisted coat with long tails, and loose striped trousers, tied in above the ankle. His partner has short skirt hanging from just below the breast which she holds up by the hem; towering feathers rise from a wreath of flowers on her head. A man in back view (right) wears tight pantaloons tied below the calf, others wear loose trousers. There is a hanging chandelier with candles."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
