Glass plate negative of a three-quarters length portrait of an unidentified man seated in a leather upholstered chair. He faces three-quarters to the right and turns his head to look at the viewer. He rests his right hand upon his right thigh and has his left elbow hooked over the back of the chair.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative do not seem to exist in the Collection.
