Black-and-white, shoulder-length portrait of a man in front of a dark background. He is facing frontally, his gaze falling to the right side of the viewer. His lips are parted in a smile, and the portrait is lit from his left side. He is wearing a light-colored dress hat with a thick, dark band around the hat, just above the brim. He is wearing a dark suit and tie with a white shirt.
