Portrait of an older gentleman with balding head and beard seated in a study or library with a book shelf behind him. He is wearing academic robes and his gaze is downcast. Subject was thought to be Rev.Dr John Kinder, Remuera, but this is not substantiated. It is unlikely Kinder would have been depicted in academic robes without the clergy collar, also his beard was considerably longer and much whiter in 1900 when the work was painted. Requires further research.
