The frontal portrait of a seated man with a hand raised to his chin with his right arm resting on a table is the subject of this painting. Maps can be seen on the wall behind and books rest on the table.
The painting consists of shapes floating together and overlapping in places. Two large yellow shapes in the upper portion of the canvas appear as sun type images. A brown shape resembles two seated figures and floats in the upper portion of the painting. A brown meandering shape moves across the lower section of the painting. Surrounding the brown meandering shape is blue which might represent water.
