In this portrait, Jones, with dark hair and a white beard, wearing a skull-cap, looks directly towards the viewer. This is thought to be a study for the half-length portrait at Chiswick House. Even allowing for transparency of paint layers due to their age, parts only appear sketched, most notably in the cap and the bottom left corner. It is likely Dobson was originally working on a slightly larger canvas, which was later cut down to remove unfinished or unpainted areas as acceptably as possible.
