The suggested title is as follows:
A small full-length portrait of a bearded man dressed in a black suit, in vertical format. He leans on a slender cane with his left hand. His right hand is raised to his neck as if adjusting a cravat. His body is turned very slightly to his right, the head slightly tilted, facing the viewer. Two lines suggest a low dado on the wall behind and to left, but only one line (the upper one) is continued to right of the figure.
Frederick Richards Leyland (1832-1892), Liverpool ship-owner, merchant and collector, was Whistler's major patron during the early 1870s.
