Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in front of a light-colored background. He is in three-quarters view, facing the right side of the image. His body is on the left side of the image, and he leans forward so that his face is in the center of the portrait. He is wearing a dark, newsboy hat, dark suit, and white shirt with faint, vertical stripes on the collar. He has dark eyes which gaze at the viewer.
