Description

Black-and-white, waist-length image of a man who is facing the viewer, in a dark, interior scene. His proper right arm is stretched out and leaning on the wall next to him, and his left arm is bent and propped up onto a chest-level object that is in front of him. The man has short, dark hair that is combed back, and a short mustache and beard. He is wearing a long-sleeved, black sweater with a plaid, collared shirt underneath. He is wearing a large, white watch with a black band on his left wrist. There are signs and paintings covering the wall behind him, in the background.
