Black-and-white image of a young boy seated on the ground, his knees raised in front of his body. He is wearing a wide-brimmed, straw hat, and there is a large piece of dark fabric draped over his proper right shoulder. He is gazing toward the viewer and his left hand is placed on the left side of his neck. His right arm is resting in his lap. He is wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt and white pants.
