May Day
"May Day"; five elaborately be-wigged boys dance round a maypole with hair brushes and mirrors while another argues outside a barber's shop on the right with a man, presumably M. de Caprioli, the dancing master, as the sign indicates above the doorway. To the left are two musicians and a seated woman with a dog.
