Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 88
A very valuable and beautiful work of art, rich in coloring and truthful in execution; and also valuable for its historical recollections. The subject is well-known. The gallantries of the Duke having often been the subject of dispute and reprimand, he caused this picture to be painted, the centre figure a portrait of his lady, for the purpose of showing her the uselessness of her labors to reform him. [Pp. 8-9.]
