Shows Warre, seated in a deck chair, reading a book inside a wooden hut. A fireplace is behind him, with the 57th Regiment's colours (flags) rolled up and crossed over and leaning against the wall. Sun streams through a small window onto the table in front of Warre. On the table are ink, writing materials and Warre's cap. A bed and a trunk are against the wall behind, which is covered with pictures. A shelf above the pictures holds bottles, jars and boxes and below the shelf to the right, clothes are hanging.

Warre was Lieutenant Colonel of the 57th Regiment

The artist has partially erased his own face.
