I do not have an image of this painting but it was described as having a man with a hooked nose and greedy-looking face chained to an account book. A pair of vultures, also with hooked beaks hover over a rough sea, probably in the background. I’ve also seen this painting called “The Pawnbroker” and I assume they are one and the same.
