The painting shows a fashionably dressed gentleman leaning over the back of a chair holding a rose. This painting was documented by Ernst Wilhelm Moes in 1909 and Hofstede de Groot in 1910, who wrote "PIETER TJARCK. M. 77. Half-length ; in an oval of painted stone. A man seated, facing three-quarters right, looks at the spectator. His right arm rests on the arm of the chair ; in the hand is a rose. He has a big moustache' and pointed beard. He is in black with a big broad hat and a soft close-fitting ruff. [Pendant to 232.] Canvas, 33 inches by 27 inches. See Moes, Iconographia Batava, No. 7993, i and 2. A copy is in the Liege Museum. Exhibited at Brussels, 1882, No. 86; in Paris, 1889; in the Royal"
