A portrait of a man in profile looking left, turning his head slightly toward us. His light skinned, clean-shaven ruddy face, and his wispy gray hair are rendered in finished detail. The collar of his red jacket and his large black hat with two points are brushed in more loosely, while his arm is indicated only by a brushed in outline on blank white canvas. The background similarly consists only of outlines of details quickly brushed in on blank canvas.
