"Folding plate to 'Hints [ut supra] ... on his modelling a bust of Lord G ****** le' (a verse satire). Nollekens (three-quarter length) stands in back view placing a bust of Grenville on a shelf at the level of his head, between the busts of Pitt (left) and Fox (right). Grenville's eyes are slits; round his neck is a rosary with a cross. Pitt's head, turned to the right, looks over his shoulder at Grenville with a puckered brow ('dignified disgust'). Fox gazes to the left. Two other busts (right and left) on brackets look down with displeasure at Grenville. On an upper shelf is a group of antique busts, their expressions registering surprise or cynical amusement. With them is an oval medallion of a monk kneeling before a cross. Below, flanking Nollekens, are two marbles from his collection of antiques: a seated satyr (left) and a much-damaged torso inscribed 'ΑπΟΛΛωΝΙΟS ΝΕSΤOROS'."--British Museum online catalogue
