His coat is decorated with fleurs-de-lis, as is a robe(?) on the table opposite him, and he wears a Louis d'Or medal. Through the window behind him is a view of "Emser Bad" and hanging on the wall is a picture of tents and a battle scene that is titled "Louis Dort" which may be a play on the words d'Or and dort. Four lines of verse are printed below the image with title: "Amice ad quid venisti" (see Matthew 26:50 "amice ad quod venisti : friend, whereto art thou come"). MEDIUM:  1 print : etching.
