Three-quarter length portrait of a young man, with his body in three-quarter view to the right, and his head turned to gaze at the viewer. He is depicted standing by a low balustrade, framed by swathes of heavy drapery decorated with fringes and tassels, with his right arm extended and resting on the rail. He wears a grey, curled wig tied with a ribbon and has on his right cheekbone a black silk lunette patch, to cover a scar received at the battle of Fontenoy in Flanders during the Wars of the Austrian Succession.
