A man wearing a red coat and stockings, a black tricorned hat and a sword at his waist. This work is part of an album of fifty-three sketches by Carlevarijs which includes figures he appears to have painted in the open air in preparation for insertion into formal compositions. Figures in very similar dress appear for example in Carlevarijs' paintings depicting the Entry of foreign Embassies such as Spain and France into the Palazzo Ducale, Venice.
