Description Bust-length portrait of Captian Robinson with brown hair, wearing a navy blue coat, white muslin shirt, high white stock and black neckcloth. His cravat is fastened with an anchor shaped pin. He is depicted before a stippled background with a vignette of a ship at the left. The face is also formed from a network of stippled dots, slightly more fine than those that make up the cloudy background. The back has an elaborate decoration of woven hair with cut-gold initials.
