A full-length portrait of Admiral Sir Peter Parker showing him facing slightly to the left. He wears an Admiral's full-dress uniform of 1795–1812, although the cuffs have not been correctly portrayed since they lack the fourth ring necessary for full dress. He wears a white waistcoat and breeches, shoes with gold buckles and a wig. In his right hand he holds a hat, and in his left his sword, decorated with an anchor and visible above his fingers.
