Mathews (left) gives a selection from his "Entertainments"; he stands behind his accustomed small draped table, which is lit by candles in place of the usual lamps. A pianist sits at the grand piano. The King stands as if making a speech: he is giving an imitation of John Kemble, evoked by Mathews's imitation thought by the King "too boisterous". On his right sits Marchioness of Conyngham, on his left Princess Augusta. Knighton stands behind the former. Five men (portraits) stand behind the royal settee: Liverpool, Wellington, and Hertford are recognizable. The room has an ornate cornice and Ionic pillars. Behind Mathews are two tall Chinese folding screens.-- See British Museum catalogue
