The majority of this print is blank, except for a series of photos and patterns on the center-left. There are three main sections. At the top are a series of horizontal bands; some are just lines in maroon, pink, red, green and yellow, and one large band has a red checker-board pattern on a maroon background. Below, there are two photographs: each one shows a different group of performers in costume lined up on display.

The largest and most central image is of a man wearing a beret, neck tie, and smock. He is turned slightly to his right, and writes with a quill using his left hand while holding a smoking cigarette in his right. He looks up at the viewer. Most of his clothes and his writing surface are only suggested by broad areas of aquatint and stopped-out blank spaces. Behind him and much smaller, are images of, clockwise from left: two clowns, two women, and a ship. The left and bottom of the sheet are left blank.
