Half length, three-quarter left side portrait of Unitarian minister Reverend William Gaskell. An elderly man with white hair and white side burns, wearing a black jacket and a neck tie, he is shown sitting to the side of a table to the right, on which lies a folded newspaper, with his hands clasped together in his lap. There is a plain shadowy background, inscribed to the right above the sitter's shoulder: 'GVLIELMVS GASKELL / AET AT LXXIII / MDCCCLXXIX'.
