Description: Portrait of John Philip Kemble as Hamlet. Full length, standing, forward, facing forward. Right arm at side holding hat, left hand slightly extended as though gesturing to make a point. He wears trunk hose with panels and short cloak. Around his neck on ribbon is chivalric order and on right breast is star-shaped insignia. The horizon is very low and there is a full moon barely visible above the horizon at right. The work would appear to have been influenced by the Thomas Lawrence painting.
