This painting depicts an anonymous African American man walking away from the viewer. Wearing a pink shirt and grey pants, he walks with head bowed, yet his shoulders straight. The landscape around him is barren and rocky, with a single upright pole standing in the foreground. There is a dead log on the ground to the right. Directly ahead of the man is a field of stones, beyond which is a bleak landscape of rocky bluffs under a grey sky. There are three trees in the distance.
