Franklin gazes directly ahead, wearing a distant but stern expression. His hair flows back from his face; his coat is suggested, in soft folds; his neckcloth is looped loosely in a single knot. The work is signed on the back: "BENJAMIN FRANKLIN / né à Boston en Amerique / le xvii Janvier 1706/ fait par J.J. Caffiéri en 1777."
