This smiling young man is in a particularly elegant pose, with his arms crossed over his blue frock coat with black velvet facings highlighted with a red line. Wearing a powdered wig typical of the second half of the 18th century, this plump face takes the leading role in this composition that is rivaled by a bound book. This book, almost glittering with its red edge and a page left for the reader's curiosity, is prominently displayed to illustrate the probable culture of this gentleman.

This portrait seems to place his origins in Eastern Europe.
