This picture shows an enormously fat man (Councellor Wollop) in a loose silk robe and with a silk cap covering his hair. He has a napkin tucked in at his neck and leans back in his chair while a much smaller man pours the contents of a glass down his throat. A further two men offer him more sustenance; one holds a tray, the other carves a joint. The table has other plates of food. The scene is set in a fine room with an (unidentified) portrait on the wall.
