The drawing in graphite and white chalk on cream paper depicts a man standing for a portrait in formalwear. His dark hair is combed back, covering his ears. He has a square beard and pointed, waxed mustache. He faces three quarters toward the left of the page, his eyes looking right. He wears white shirt under a dark double-breasted suit, with star-shaped badges hung from his collar and affixed to his left breast. Over his suit he wears a dark robe with light lining, which falls off his left shoulder. He holds a white glove in his right hand. In the bottom right of the page is a top hat resting on its crown, and a block of written script above it.
