Description
Literature

Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, facing the right side of the image. He is sitting in front of a dark background and the light source highlights his face and chest. The man is smoking a cigarette and there is a trail of smoke floating up from his cigarette in the top right quadrant of the image. He is seated in a chair, his right elbow resting on the arm of the chair, holding the cigarette in his right hand at chest level. He has short hair that is combed back, and a small mustache. He is wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and a dark tie with thin white stripes.
