Description: Portrait of Charles Kemble as Hamlet. Full length, slightly to left, facing slightly left, eyes wide open and staring as if in fright or horror. His arms are folded across in front of him, but his right index finger is raised and pointed off to right. He wears knee-length black tunic with belt that has square buckle. He has a white ruff. Around his neck hangs what appears to be the Order of the Elephant, although it is only partially visible.
