Description
Literature

Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a man in profile, seated in a small black chair. The background is dark and the source of light appears to come from the right side of the image. He is looking down at a piece of fabric in his hands, and his legs are crossed. He is wearing a dark suit, white socks, and dark, shiny shoes. He is balding, but there is a tuft of white hair on top of his head and around the sides and back of his head. He has a small white beard.
