A portrait of a young English gentleman on the grand tour. The subject is dressed in a bright crimson coat, waistcoat and breeches with gold braiding, lace cuffs and cravat. A sword hangs at his side with only the hilt visible. He stands facing the viewer with his head turned to his right. His left arm rests on a worn map of Rome, on a green marble table top, next to an inkwell. His right arm gestures out of the picture. Behind him, on the left, a bust of Minerva, rests on the table, with a pile of books at its base. Through a window framed by drapery on the left and a fluted column on the right, the Colosseum is visible in the background.
