A man, seated or standing, left, at a table, right. He wears a yellow shirt and a pink tunic with a red and green cloak. He is modelled on the engraved portrait of Abraham Gorlaeus (1549–1609), a scholar of coins, medals, seals and rings, which appears as a frontispiece to his Dactyliotheca (Delft, 1601), engraved by Jacques De Gheyn. The table has a blue-green cloth. Chemical equipment is on the table and in a cabinet behind.
