The portrait depicts Seweryn Jan Rzewuski of the Krzywda coat of arms, a son of Stanisław Mateusz, the Grand Crown Hetman, an older brother of Hetman Wacław Rzewuski, and of Ludwika née Kunicka.
Seweryn Józef Rzewuski inherited the castle in Olesko; he performed functions of Rittmeister [cavalry officer] of the armoured banner, the Royal Deputy Cup bearer of the Crown and the Grand Crown Referendary. In 1751, he received the Order of the White Eagle.
The author of the portrait is Jacek (Hiacynt) Olesiński, who was active as a painter during the years 1745–1758. He was the court painter of the hetman, Wacław Rzewuski, the owner of the castle in Podhorce. The artist worked at his court for several years. Among other things, he was the author of religious scenes decorating the palatine chapel in Podhorce.
The portrait presents the model in half-length, in a red kontusz (a typical robe or coat worn by Polish nobility), tied by a kontusz belt. The face, with full sensual lips, is animated by the moustache with its ends turned upwards. At the bottom, on the left, there is the head of a mace, which the person portrayed holds in his right hand, the mace itself remaining outside the frame of the portrait.
