This unsigned panel depicts an unidentified musician, seen at half-length. He holds a score, which is legible, but not yet identified. The man wears a black coat; plain, high-collared white shirt, and a white cravat, a style broadly fashionably among European elite and bourgeois men in the years around 1800.
