At center, a man is seated in three quarter profile, facing left, but turning his head to look at us, while resting his left arm on the back of his chair. He is clean shaven, has a pale complexion, dark eyes, and his thin, closely shorn hair is tucked into a large light pink beret-like cap. He wears a white cravat under a gold silk waistcoat, and a loose brown silk robe over that. Resting on his knee, his right hand holds a quill pen. Behind him, a desk holds an inkwell and sheets of paper with writing on them.
