Portrait of the Duke of Grafton in his official finery: leather embossed armor with heads, fleur-de-lys and other motifs, sword at his side, heavy cape buckled over his shoulders and held by one hand, white shirt with long full sleeves, embossed (lace?) tie at throat, behind him a huge standard with similar motifs, and on wall at his left a painting of his ship. His curly and full dark hair cascades over his shoulders and chest. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/11/94)
