This life-size portrait depicts the king, aged about 68, in full regal robes. He wears a shorter mine cape over which are the collars of the Saint Esprit and the Golden Fleece. Under the cape he wears a purple velvet cloak lined with ermine and embroidered with gold fleurs-de-lis. He wears the Garter below his left knee. He holds his sceptre, the other end of which rests on a book which lies on a table to the left, together with another sceptre and a crown.
