A navigator with globe and dividers
A full-length portrait of a gentleman. Facing viewer's left he wears a brown doublet and a black cloak slung over his left shoulder, with a lace ruff and lace cuffs. He has black breeches, green stockings, and ornate beribboned shoes. On the left is a table bearing a carefully delineated celestial globe. The points of a pair of dividers held in the sitter's right hand rest over the globe. Beyond, through an open window, a ship is shown to indicate his navigational pursuits. A large rolled up chart lies on the floor to the right.
