In its austere and plain framing, the engrossed face of the painter, whose profile is portrayed set against the green-blue wall in the background, draws on the figurative portraiture tradition of the mid-15th century. The canvas features a dedication hinting at a longstanding acquaintance and closeness between the artists, which is confirmed by the stylistic similarities in the use of pastels with contemporary works by De Maria.
