Inscriptions/Signature

The painting is of an old man, from the shoulders up. He is looking straight on, with dark hair peeking out from under a white headband with black spots. He has prominent wrinkles around his eyes and chin. He is wearing a white shirt with a collar and a bolo tie with an oval turquoise stone.

It is currently in a brown wooden frame with an orange velour mat.
