Composition in black and white. Lines defining contours and shading setting volume. On the right hand study prospector, occupying the center of the support area; against white background. The hand is slightly diagonally looking up the suggestion in the upper half of the handle holder; it is ajar, cupped, seeing himself clearly the five fingers and the palm with the well-marked lines. Strong shaded define hand volume suggesting force.
