Three-quarter length, three-quarter left side portrait of Domenico Giuliani, young man with short dark hair and moustache, dressed in dark sixteenth-century costume with white ruff. He stands at a table to left, writing a letter, his hand poised with a quill over the sheet of paper, two more quills and a folded paper on the table beside him. Behind the table to left stands his black servant, a boy in dark dress with white sleeves and ruff, holding a letter in his hand. There is a heavy curtain in the background to the left.
