A man painting (a photograph?)
A man kneels on tatami mats whilst painting on a low table. He is wearing a kimono and has his hair arranged in the 'chonmage' style: the top of his head is shaven and the hair is tied back in a topknot.
Painting brushes and paints line the table. The man is holding a brush in his right hand and is painting a small picture that may be a photograph.
In front of the man is a tobacco tray and on his left is another one covered with blue and white teapot and cups. Behind him is a large painted screen; other photographs show that it has a total of six panels, each decorated with different figures surrounded by vegetation.
