Black-and-white photograph of Oskar Maria Graf. The writer is sitting on a wicker chair. He is leaning slightly to one side, his left arm resting on the backrest. He is holding a cigarette butt in his left hand. In his right hand, which is resting on his lap, he is holding a book. He is looking directly into the camera. Graf is wearing a dark striped suit, a white shirt and a dark striped tie. In the background one can see a bright wall unit with closed, flat doors and drawers, which is connected above to an open shelf with magazines and books. The photograph has a white border and a white area at the bottom where the signature “B.” and “New York July 1954” are visible.
