Black-and-white image of a man seated in a large doorway, turned slightly toward the interior setting. There are trees visible through the doorway, and there is an easel with a small drawing inside the room, in the left side of the image. The man has short, white hair and a white mustache. He is wearing large glasses with thin frames, and a light-colored jacket and pants. The floor of the indoor setting is covered with rough, unfinished wood.
