Three-quarter-length portrait of a young man with wavy hair and sideburns. His dark suit of short buttoned jacket and trousers is partially covered by a dark lustrous coat with fur on the cuffs and all around the opening. His cravat is dark, with just a touch of white to indicate a shirt. His left hand rests on some papers on a heavy carved table. A dark pot contains two plume-pens. Heavy curtain billows across upper right corner. (Virginia K. Anderson 02/13/95)
