Black-and-white, hip-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the right side of the image. He is seated in a wooden chair and he has a newspaper opened in his lap. He has short, white hair that is combed back, and he is wearing wire-rimmed eyeglasses, pushed up onto his forehead, and another pair over his eyes. There is a thin pen hanging from the left side of his mouth. He is wearing a white, collared shirt and light-colored pants. His proper right arm is resting on the arm of the chair, and his hand is touching his left ear.
