At center right, an elderly man in a black hat with the brim flipped up, faces toward us but turns his head to the right, looking upward. He has a prominent nose, light skin and gaunt features. Gray hair peeking out from his hat is tied in back with a black ribbon, and he wears a red jacket with gold epaulets. Just behind him at center left, another man is identically dressed. He has pale skin, a full round face and gray curls protruding from his hat, as he looks up and to the left. The background is quickly brushed red and brown tones. Details at the edges of the canvas are left blank or rendered only in outline.
