The Roman emperor Vespasian sits in an interior receiving a document from a standing figure to the right of the composition.  The emperor is dressed in a white robe and sits on a red chair to the left of the composition.  The interior is largely dark, with the exception of the emperor, whose figure is brightly lit.<br />The painting is in the original frame, which is constructed to resemble a Roman Temple with base, entablature, and fluted ionic pilasters.
