Satirical print showing a fat Englishman mocked by a group of Parisians. The Englishman, built along the lines of John Bull, stands at right in his shirtsleeves, clapping his right hand to his forehead in wonder; at left, at least five French people stand together within his buttoned up waistcoat, gesticulating festively; behind at left, a fat woman admired by sketchily drawn thin onlookers.
