Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in frontal view. He is wearing a dark-colored hat with a small brim, plaid shirt with a collar and buttons down the front, and a dark vest that is not fastened. There are several short strands of hair visible from under his hat and his mouth is open as though he is speaking.
