Description
Literature

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a man in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image. He is seated in front of a black background and his proper left elbow is propped up so that his hand is to the left of his face. He has dark hair that is combed back, and he is wearing round, wire-framed eyeglasses. The source of light hits his face from the left side of the image, and he is wearing a dark jacket.
