vmtcom нашел ее описание! Из Illustrated London News, May 13, 1871 с этой гравюрой. Там подробный комментарий:
"This picture by Herr Carl Hoff which we have engraved tells its own amusing story very clearly. The mistress of the house has been sitting for her portrait. The sitting is now over, but she has left her fan on the chair which has been placed on the artist's "throne" to the left. Both sitter and artist have doubtless now left left the house, and so taking advantage of their absence, all the domestics of the establishment - from bewigged steward in his gorgeous livery to the sleek-headed page, cook, housemaid, and lady's maid - come to pass their critical judgment on the performance. The verdict is apparently favourable in two cases, and it is an important point for the artist that those include the lady's maid - at least, so it seems from the pleasure she derives from inspecting the picture, telescope fashion, through her hand. The housemaid is slower in recognising the likeness(?) and the page is too stupid(?) to have yet formed any critical opinion. Much depends, however, on the decision of the steward or butler... и т.д. - трудно разбирать шрифт."
