This image shows a gold framed portrait of Thomas McDonogh. The portrait is against a white background. Thomas is wearing a red jacket with a blue shirt. His right hand is resting inside a buttonhole of the shirt, so you cannot see his hand. His left wrist is placed on the wooden chair he is sitting on, with his hand dangling over. His eyebrows are raised as he stares at the viewer.
