Portrait of David Garrick as Hamlet. Bust length, forward, facing slightly left.
His eyes are wide and staring as though in horror. His hair (wig?) appears to
be standing up at rear. Possibly this illustrates the special wig that Garrick's
wigmaker claims to have made and which could be made to 'stand up' to express
Hamlet's emotions when he encountered the Ghost. Caption: 'Garrick. tragedien
