Head and shoulders. A portrait of a timid, intense and attractive small boy with pink cheeks and brushed hair. The formality of his Eton collar, black jacket and cravat serve to make him look diffident beyond his years. His head, seen close to, faces to the left and is set against a plain wall. Large pale blue eyes, round and glassy as marbles, in their symmetry betray the hallmark of the amateur artist. Sentimental though not disagreeably so.
