Abstract:
"A fashionable crowd, with two card-tables, a round table in the foreground (left) at which four persons play Pope-Joan; the most conspicuous is a pretty young woman directed to the left, her loose semi-transparent draperies revealing her person and leaving her breasts almost uncovered. A leering man stands behind her chair, negligently holding candle-snuffers to a candle on the table, in order to peer down her deĢcolletage. A stout lady in back view, sitting on a stool (identified as Lady Buckinghamshire, but (?) Duchess of Gordon), a little girl, and an elderly man (identified as Dr. Sneyd) complete the table. On the right is another card-table at which three persons are playing. Standing figures freely sketched form a background, the whole design being dominated by the erect feathers of the ladies, usually springing from a turban."--British Museum online catalogue.
