Three-quarter length portrait of Sir Guise in profile. He is dressed as a Roman Senator and is carrying a scroll in one hand. The other hand is on his sword. It is possible that he chose to be portrayed as a Roman Senator as he was very interested in art, especially Italian Renaissance, baroque, mythology and Roman history. He is set against a plain, dark background.
