Summary

Half-length, three-quarter left side portrait of poet laureat John Masefield, wearing a dark jacket and tie, with short hair and a moustache. He is shown siting with his hands clasped together in his lap, looking off to the left. The paintwork shows impressionist influences in the textured marks and moddled surface. The figure's face is illuminated inviting focus on this part of the painting.
