Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view (identified as C. Vandyck), turned toward the left side of the image. The man is balding on top of his head and he has a thick, dark mustache. He is wearing a dark jacket and white, collared shirt. The image fades into white in a circle around the man, and there is a thin, gold border around the image, surrounded by a thick, white border.
