A profile image of a man looking to the right with his right arm extended. He is wearing a black top hat with a red and blue cockade at the top.

His cravat is tied very high, almost to his chin. He wears a red and black striped scarf around his neck, tucked into his waistcoat. His pale yellow breeches are tucked into black boots with brown tops. He holds a whip in his left hand.
