Huxley is seated at three-quarter-length, left hand (with signet ring) gripping one arm of a wooden chair. His right hand rests on the flat surface of an open roll-top writing desk (left of picture as viewed) holding a steel pen. On the desk is an inkwell, with loose and filed papers. Bookshelves can be seen behind both sitter and desk. Huxley is grey-haired and clean-shaven except for side whiskers.
