Brougham, as Cupid, dances along, dragging Wharncliffe after him by a cord round the waist. He holds up his bow; his quiver is inscribed 'Persuasives', and he has transfixed Wharncliffe with five arrows. The latter pulls coyly away, resisting Brougham. He is adjured to 'yield at once to Cupid Brougham's sway'. See No. 16930, &c.; part of a series of six; proof before the published state.Wood-engraving
