Black-and-white image of a man, whose back is turned to the viewer, facing an armoire with mirrors on its two doors. In the left mirror the back of a nude woman is visible, and she is leaning forward toward her proper left foot, which is placed on a chair. The man is wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt and dark pants. There is a patterned wallpaper covering the walls.
