In this portrait of C. Drury E. Fortnum, Esq., DCL, he is seen in his house at Stanmore, surrounded by some of the collections he would later give or bequeath to the Ashmolean. He holds a jug of Medici porcelain; on the desk is one of his Palissy figures, a bronze of St John the Baptist and a bronze candlestick, while on the chair is propped up the 'Virgin and Child' by Pintoricchio.
