In this artwork the artist returns to his customary subject of the seated figure purged of any allegoric and descripctive residues. An obvious indication of this choice is the elimination of the facial aspect of the figure, thereby entrusting the entire composition to the volumes of the figure's clothing and surrounding objects.
