Description

Pencil sketch shows an elderly man raking leaves. His back is to the observer. His broad shoulders are hunched up and he is wearing a baggy long sleeved shirt tucked into his pants. The handle end of a rake is visible over the man's right shoulder. He is wearing a flat cap; all that can be seen from under the cap are the back of his neck and his left ear. The drawing fades at just below the man's knees and text below the image reads: old man raking leaves outside philosophy class window. The text is all lower case, with no punctuation. The drawing is just left of center on the paper. The medium-weight drawing paper came from a spiral-bound pad and the majority of the tabs are still mostly intact along the top.
