Half-length portrait of the Marquess of Northampton, standing, half-turned to the left as viewed. Northampton’s right hand is holding an upright paper-bound book on a table covered with a red patterned cloth and papers. In his left hand he holds spectacles (?) hanging from his neck by a black ribbon. Northampton wears a black coat over a black suit, with a white high-collared shirt and tie. On a chair behind and to the right as viewed, his ermine robes have been casually thrown over a chair.
