A portrait of Joachimo Ernesto Marchioni in full armour dress. He stands with his hand on his hip and his arm around his elaborate feathered helmet. A sword is slung around his portly waist and a lacy sash around his chest. A high lacy collar surrounds his bearded and moustached face. His hair is piled high in waves upon his head. A family crest is hung on the wall behind him and silky curtians surround him. Five lines of text are below the portrait. (Rozell Overmire 05/05/94)
