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.
