Notes (Hamnet):
From 2009 exhibition label: Fuseli's sketch captures the action of Merry Wives of Windsor, act 4, scene 2. Mistress Ford tells Falstaff he can escape from her husband disguised as her maid's aunt, but she is fooling Falstaff as well as Ford. She knows full well her husband thinks the aunt is a witch, and will drive "her" from the house with blows. Ford's pose, as he prepares to strike Falstaff, is based on the classical statuary Fuseli studied in Rome.
