Three-quarter-length portrait of Sir Joseph Williamson leaning with his right arm against an architectural pillar, the upper portions swathed in a brown hanging. Williamson’s left hand is held at his hip. He wears a shoulder-length brown wig and a brown coat, embroidered in gold and silver, with a white shirt and lace neck-cravat. Over this, a green velvet cloak worn across the body and held at the shoulder by a jewelled clasp.
