A three-quarter-length portrait showing the sitter, full-face to the viewer. He wears admiral's ball dress, 1891, with the stars of the GCB, Grand Cordon of the Order of Osmerish and miniatures. He holds his sword in his left hand and has placed his right hand on his jacket. To his right is a table with some papers on it. The top one reads 'Naval Education 1902', which alludes to Admiral Fisher's enthusiasm for naval reform.
