Half-length portrait of an elderly man seen seated in profile to the left with his head turned in three-quarter view. He is depicted with white hair and a beard, wearing small spectacles with thin gold frames and gazing into the left distance; he is smartly dressed in a black jacket and tie, worn with a white shirt and grey trousers. His hands are clasped and rest on his crossed legs as he leans back into the polished, wooden-framed chair. Placed beside the sitter, to his right, is a small table on which sits a glass vase containing white and red roses. The background colour is a lilac-grey.
