The barber (right) flourishes his razor above the head of a lean client whose face a boy (left) coats with lather, using a large brush; a bucket hangs on the boy's arm. In the background (right) a second customer in back view is also being shaved. Two wig-blocks lie on the ground (right)."--British Museum online catalogue.
