The half-length portrait depicts the subject sat, wearing a white shirt, necktie, waistcoat and unbuttoned frock coat. This young gentleman is probably a scholar – supported by a proud family.

Despite his fairly young age, he is presented in a relaxed pose with his eye gazing directly out to the viewer. The identity of this sitter has not yet been identified.
