Prince João on Horseback
The prince wears a gleaming suit of armour under a floral-patterned brocade. His horse is richly attired in a caparison with a sheen that suggests brown velvet. The jumble of figures around the prince includes trumpeters and soldiers wielding muskets, crossbows, and other weapons.
