A fat vulgar woman, completely bald, an wearing only a chemise, necklace with miniature, bracelets, stockings, an shoes, stands by her dressing-table, on which is a wig with flowing ringlets; a bottle of 'Coniac', and a glass. She calls to the comely but rather coarse maid (right) who stands behind her: "Hannah! bring me a dry Napkin, for I'm all over of a Muck, I've been fanning myself with my Smock for this half hour, and I think it only makes Me so much the hotterer . . . [&c.]'. 20 May 1802 Hand-coloured etching
