Half-length portrait of a seated male figure, with forward-facing torso, his head turned to the left in three-quarter view and his hands folded and resting on his knee; he has uncut hair, which parts at the centre to frame his face, and a full beard; he wears a wide-sleeved robe. The face is depicted in a detailed style using hatching to create gentle gradations of tone; the torso of the sitter is drawn predominantly in line. No background detail.
