Description: At centre David Garrick (or possibly John Bannister) in night shirt and high cap. Around his shoulder and arms, a cape or blanket. His legs are wide apart, his body to the viewer but his head turned to the left so as to view himself in a mirror above a fireplace at left. Behind him on the right is the bed out of which he has just come. His arms are extended, his palms raised. He is practising the familiar 'start', used in theatrical representations when Hamlet first sees the Ghost.
