John Quincy Adams stands in a tall space on the left, next to a desk covered with dark green cloth. His high collared white shirt ties at the neck. He’s fair skinned with dark eyes, slightly ruddy complexion, partially balding, angular nose. His right hand rests on a small stack of books, his left hand at his side holds a rolled up paper. To the right behind him is an opening with pillars into a garden and landscape beyond with a dramatic sky. A white classical female statue on a pedestal outside can be seen beyond the pillars.
