Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the right side of the image. He is seated in front of a dark background, and he has dark, straight hair that is combed back neatly and parted on the left side of his head. The source of light hits the right side of his head and shoulder. He is wearing a tweed suit and vest with a black and white, horizontally striped tie, and a white, collared shirt.
