12 x 16. The hand of the excellent artist is strongly visible in this work. It is a very fine impersonation of the discrowned and crazy old monarch, with his wreath of weeds and flowers on his head for a crown. The passage of the poet represented is in Scene VI, Act IV., "Ay, every inch a king." [P. 253.]
