"Social satire; a tall thin man with a tasselled tricorn hat in one hand and wearing a sword, wig, buckled shoes and rings on both hands steps forward towards a large lady with a wreath in her hair, beauty spots, several rings, a cupid's bow and arrow on a ribbon round her neck, a large muff, and a very low decolletage; behind them their two dogs mimic their actions; the man asks "Beauty need note de foraine aid of ornamen but ees ven unadorn adorn de mos.", to which the woman replies "I really cannot resist the pleasing truth of the bewitching Markeee. - - ah! Sweet Sir I yield, ah!""--British Museum online catalogue
