Frederick indignant at the harsh treatment of his father, attempted to escape to England, to the Court of George Second, his mother's brother. He was overtaken and imprisoned in the fortress of Custrin. At the expiration of two years, after an interview and reconciliation with the King, he was permitted to appear at Court on the occasion of a ball given in honor of the marriage of his sister. The artist has chosen the moment when Frederick is kneeling to his mother and the King approaches with his daughters, crying, "See! Madam, there is Fritz again." [P. 4.]
