Description: In background, the departing figures of Horatio, Marcellus and Bernardo. In left foreground stands Hamlet, facing right. His right hand is slightly raised in front of him, his left hand held across his waist towards his right hip. He has pale, beardless face and shoulder-length hair. The artist seems to be depicting the lines that close the scene, a possible 'aside': 'O cursed spite,' etc.
