An African-American man, wrapped in brown coat and scarf, sits near a slightly dilapidated hearth, heating his kettle. In one hand is his cane, in the other a folded newspaper; his hat sits on the floor nearby. In the top right corner are his painter's tools. Pinned to the door is a poster marked "Hayti."
