Abstract
  • [After British Museum No. 12934]“Falling man lies on the ground, his foot (without a spur) gashes a lady's dress from waist to hem; the lady whom he clutches falls forward, kicking a man behind her. All the figures are altered in pose and character and two have been added. The two musicians are on a cloth-covered table, the violinist stands instead of sitting. In the centre of the back wall between two heavily draped windows is a large mirror above a console table with ajar of flowers. The round chandelier is decorated with dragons emitting flames of gas. There is a rolled up carpet (r.) showing that the dancing is impromptu.” (Source: George)
