Six of the seven ages of man from Jaques' speech are depicted - the baby (part 2); the soldier (part 3); the lover (part 4); the justice (part 5); the schoolboy (part 6); the lean and slippered pantaloon (part 7). Part 1 depicts a woman laying a cloth in a coffin, and may be meant to allude to the seventh age.
Notes (Hamnet): 
These paintings were reproduced as stipple engravings in the 1799 publication "Shakspeares seven ages of man illustrated." All the paintings were reproduced with the exception of part 1. A different design was used for the seventh age, "second childishness", and Stothard's original for that age is not included in this collection.
