Black-and-white portrait of a seated man, from the waist up, against a black background. His body is on the right side of the image, facing to the left, and his face is turned toward the viewer in three-quarters view. His left arm is bent, and his forearm rests on his left knee. He is wearing a black suit over a white shirt, of which the collar and cuff of his left arm are visible. There is a white carnation attached to the left lapel of his jacket.
