The portrait represents a child with short, curling hair, in the garment of a young boy: a bright red frock, with undershirt visible at the neck and cuffs. A vivid blue robe wraps his body below the waist. He is depicted outdoors, with trees behind him providing a dark background for his head and body. In the far distance is a hillside with a single tree standing on it, and a patch of sky visible at the upper left of the canvas. The child faces the viewer squarely, his left hand raised in salute; his right arm, bent at the elbow, rests on a raised hill(?) covered with red. Behind him is a curtain of red cloth.
