Lady Godina's Rout or Peeping-Tom spying out Pope-Joan
|Main Creator:||Brocas, William, ca. 1794-1868, artist|
A fashionable crowd are seated playing the card game Pope-Joan. Among them is an elderly man (Dr. Sneyd), and a young woman identified as "Godina" or Lady Georgina Gordon. She wears a very revealing dress and a man holding a candle snuffer stands behind her in order to look down the front of her dress. This design is dominated by the errect feathers which decorate the ladies turbans and headresses.
