Literature

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, his body turned toward the left side of the image and his face turned toward the right side. He is standing in front of a background that is gray on the left side and black on the right side of the image. He is wearing a gray dress hat with a thick, black band just above the brim, a gray jacket, a black vest, a white shirt, and a dark-colored tie. The collar of his jacket is turned up slightly.
