A three-quarter length portrait of the ship owner Walter Runciman. He looks directly out of the picture to meet the viewer’s gaze. A man of strong character and striking appearance he was respected throughout the shipping industry for his individualism, geniality, and kindliness. The background is appropriately plain for this life-long teetotaller. His sailing interests are indicated through the model of a sailing ship sitting on the tallboy.
