Roundel with Drummer

French blue flourishes are painted on each of the four corners. Within the 11 1/3" in diameter roundel outlined in gold metallic paint is a single figure wearing a yellow drum with red rims. He holds two sticks as though playing the drum while he glances toward the viewer's left. There is a wood enclosure at left foreground. The drummer is wearing a blue coat with gold buttons. His hat has a red feather attached in front.
