The portrait shows the upper body of a man looking towards the left. He wears a fur-trimmed hat, in front of a background with cross-hatching. The picture is inside a round frame within a square with parallel hatching. A strip of writing at the bottom reads: “Antonius Koburger, Norimbergensis”, the Koberger coat of arms can be seen in the upper section. The crest is divided horizontally in the middle and the upper part contains the silhouette of a townscape.
