Charles Lucas (1808–1869) is depicted bust-length, turned to the right, wearing a grey jacket with large buttons and a white stock, before a dark background. He was one of the first students of the Royal Academy of Music, becoming a professor and then the third Principal, 1859–1866. In 'A List of Pupils Received Into the Academy since Its Foundation in 1822-3', published in 1838, he is recorded as 'A highly distinguished violoncello player and composer (late of the Queen's Band); conductor of the Royal Academy of Music and Vocal Concerts, An Associate Honorary Member'.
