Abstract:
"Scene in a neat parlour or music room, with open square piano and lyre-back chairs. A middle-aged termagant, coquettishly dressed, has overturned her chair and stands with raised fist, shrieking at a very young man in riding-dress. He sits (left) with hat and riding-switch beside him, bewildered and passive; his dog takes cover under his chair, looking sideways at an aggressive cat which arches its back against its mistress. A cockatoo screams from its perch. On the piano, which is inscribed Row Maker, is an open music-book: Blow High. Blow Low; on the floor is a book open at Wake to Ecstacy the living Lyre. Behind the woman's head is a convex wall-mirror, topped by a carved eagle which looks fiercely down. This is flanked by two sea-scapes: Calm (left), ships becalmed, and Storm (right), a ship struck by lightning and about to be submerged in towering waves."--British Museum catalogue.
