Black-and-white image of a young boy seated on the ground, leaning against a stone wall. He has short, dark hair and he is resting his chin on his proper left hand. His right hand is placed on his right knee, and there is a wide-brimmed, straw hat on his left knee. He is gazing toward the viewer and wearing a long-sleeved white shirt and light-colored pants.
