Portrait of a man seated at table, holding a book

Man wearing a checked waistcoat, seated at a table with floral tablecloth, books and a top hat. Probably seated in front of a background.

The tablecloth is blurred, probably because the portrait was taken out of doors and the wind moved it during the long exposure.
