This is a state portrait showing the King in full-length. On his head a white whig with long ringlets. He is dressed in a light blue costume embroidered with white decorations. The royal mantle in purple has an ermine cape over the shoulders, his right hand rests on the hip while pointing with his left hand to the regalia (not the Swedish ones); the orb, sceptre and crown laying on a red velvet cushion on a heavily ornamented table. Among these ornaments the Swedish and the Hesse coats of arms. Behind him the silver throne of Queen Christina can be distinguished. It´s not possible to date the painting more exactly than from the period after Schröder's return in 1724 and up to the 1740s, when his style became more and more outdated. More of comparable studies of the motive is needed. It is not signed.
