Depicts anarchist writer and publisher Jean Grave at work writing at a large table, which is covered in plants, books and papers. He sits before a brightly-lit window pane, and a round pipe-stove occupies the space in the lower right foreground. Stacked shelving on the left side of the composition is crowded with uneven piles, as is the space under the table.
