Abstract:
"A scene on the Steine at Brighton. A small, fashionably dressed man carries (left to right) a large and muscular man, who sits astride his back, naked, holding his hat to shield his person. Two ladies (right) walking together stare at him, one holding up a fan and looking through the fingers she puts across her eyes. A dog (right) snarls at the naked man. On the left the Prince of Wales stands full-face, legs astride, arms akimbo, ogling a lady who stands (left) in profile to the right, staring at him immodestly (Lady Jersey?). Another lady smiles at the Prince. In the background are promenading couples, and a house with a circular bow window. Beneath the title: 'NB The singularity of the Spectacle & the Largeness of the Object caused much mirth among the Ladies - Lady C------ [Cholmondeley?] Exclaimed with a Sigh oh it is too much for any Man!!'"--British Museum online catalogue.
