- "Lady Salisbury stands on a mound holding up a fox's brush. She has outstripped the hounds who rush towards her, the foremost just about to reach her. She turns her head in profile to the left; her long dark hair streams down her back; she wears a hunting-cap resembling the helmet of a light horseman, the skirt of her habit and an under-petticoat are in tatters, the lower part torn away, showing laced half-boots and torn stockings. A masculine collar is thickly swathed with a coloured scarf, as in BMSat 10169. She wears an eyeglass on a ribbon. The background is a landscape with distant mountains; horses and hounds in the middle distance. Below the title: '"Out-stript the Winds in Speed upon the Plain, "Flies o'er the Fields, nor hurts the bearded Grain; "Men, Boys & Women, stupid with surprize, " Where e'er she passes, fix their wondering eyes. Drydens Virgil - '."--British Museum online catalogue.
