Half-length portrait of Frederick Henry Snow Pendleton, an English musician who Brown befriended in Ghent. Pendleton is depicted in a tight-fitting double-breasted black coat over a white shirt with frilled front and a black stock around his neck. He is holding a violin in his left hand. His upper body faces left and his head is turned slightly to face the viewer in three-quarter view. Behind him are a tree trunk and a loosely painted background of trees and sky to the right. Pendleton later became a clergyman and remained in correspondence with Brown throughout his life.
