A political satire: Charles Grey and the Duke of Wellington are depicted as ballet dancers. Grey wears a large plumed hat and his tunic is slightly more ornate than that of the Duke, who is bareheaded. Each stands on the right foot, with the left leg extended. Grey: "That you shine in a pirouette, I readily admit, but for standing long, & steadily upon one leg, I flatter myself that I enjoy some reputation." Wellington: "I defy any man to turn round quicker than I can."
