Portrait of John Henderson (1747-85) as Hamlet. Whole length, to left, standing,
right arm extended, holding sword almost horizontally. He wears contemporary eighteenth-century
dress (black frock coat, knee-length black breeches, black stockings) and a wig.
He appears to be walking (his left foot is in front of the right and the heel
of the right is lifted as though he is stepping forward) towards the left, presumably
in the direction that the Ghost is leading him.
