The fair skinned man looks over his right shoulder toward the viewer with soft dark eyes, short dark hair with thin beard and moustache. The face is the most defined part of this self portrait of the artist. He wears a grey smock-like coat over a white shirt and dark tie underneath. There are many strokes of subtle color in his face and the grey coat. His bent right elbow and hand may be holding something undefined, flesh colored brush strokes indicate his hands. The background is made of loose brushstrokes of muted greens and blues.
