"Skeffington, in back view, stands squarely, but looks smiling to the right, his sharp features in profile. He wears a round hat, powdered hair, with a dark whisker, a much-wrinkled Jean de Bry coat (see BMSat 9425), breeches, and top-boots with spike toes. His coat-collar and shoulders are thickly coated with hair-powder (cf. BMSat 8190). His attitude is that of one displaying his ungainly costume. He faces a path which leads to a distant gibbet."--British Museum online catalogue.
