Three-quarter length painting of Flamsteed, seated on a high-backed green upholstered chair, with a covered table on his left. He wears a black robe with white, squared collar. The sitter holds his right hand to his chest; the left rests on a brown leather-bound volume of his own stellar observations [eventually published posthumously as Atlas Coelestis, 1729] on the tabletop. An architectural pillar is visible behind. John Flamsteed was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1677.

Original: oil on canvas, 1245x1016mm. 1712
