Half-length portrait of John Dollond, seated at a table, wearing a brown coat, white shirt and cravat. On the table is a volume with 'Opticks' (presumably denoting Sir Isaac Newton’s work) written on the top edge, and a small brass-boxed lens resting on top of the volume. Dollond holds a similar, smaller lens in his left hand.
