A painting of a reclining man. The man wears a green shirt and gazes downwads, reading a book which is held by both hands in his lap. The man has pale skin, short brown hair, and wears red pants and a green shirt which is partially illuminated on the ight side. The green shirt starkly contrasts the backgound color, which is a deep maroon color that matches the figure's pants. Undulating brushstrokes and painterly mark-making characterize this painting, bringing patches of dark and light colors throughout the background.
