Portrait of a young man holding a copy of Milton's work
Portrait of a young man seated in a chair wearing a dark jacket, white shirt with high collar and neck tie with red stick pin; holding a book in his right hand. Plain grayish-brown background; gold frame.
Two abstracted bust-length figures, one male and one female, look directly at the viewer with large smiles against a tan background filled with swirling lines and scribbles. The face and eyes of each figure are outlined in thick green, the mouths in thick yellow. The “whites” of the eyes are red, while the pupils are circles of pale purple. From the eyes of the male figure, purple paint drips down his checks; in the female figure, the paint drips upwards.
