Description

Portrait of a man (P.P. Rubens) looking directly at the viewer. He is wearing a large hat that almost blends in completely with the dark background. In his gloved hands, he is holding the hilt of his sword. To the left of him is a dark receding staircase. The man is wearing a large ruff around his neck.
