Listed as being a portrait of Edward James Loder, the composer and pianist, it has also been suggested that the sitter could be George Loder, violinist and orchestral leader, or John David Loder. It may be that Edward Loder also played the violin. The sitter is depicted wearing a fashionable black collar arrangement over his shirt. Illustrated music can be seen, lower left, and there is a rich red throw over the chair on which Loder is seated.
