Description
Literature

Black-and-white portrait of a man from the waist up, in three-quarters view from his left side. He is standing against a dark background and he has short, dark hair that is parted on the left side, and a cleft in his chin. His arms are bent at the elbow and there is a shiny, black cane hung over his left arm. He is wearing a dark trenchcoat, white collar, and light-colored gloves. He appears to be pulling the glove onto his left hand with his right hand.
