Description
Exhibitions

Black-and-white image of four figures in an interior. The two figures in the foreground are kissing. A man with a beard is visible, and the figure he is kissing is only visible from the top of the head. This figure has dark hair that is parted in the center. The other two figures, two men in the background, are seated. The man in the left side of the image is resting his head on his proper right hand and sleeping. The man on the right side is gazing toward the right side of the image, his proper right hand touching his forehead. There is a television on a stand in the top left corner of the image, and a table covered with various objects in the top right quadrant of the image.
