This image is an oil painting portrait from what appears to be the 18th century. The subject is dressed in a formal coat that is a soft grey tone with gold embellishments along the front edge, which suggests a status of wealth or nobility. These embellishments include what looks like gold braiding and buttons. Underneath the coat, the clothing appears to be a white shirt or cravat, indicative of the fashion during that period. The person also has a powdered wig styled in rolls, which was a popular style of the time, and part of the wig can be observed above the shoulder, signifying that it is a wig with a voluminous back. The background of the painting is a dark, indistinct color that contrasts with the lighter colors of the attire, drawing focus to the clothing's detail and the status of the subject.
