paper, h 29cm × w 28cm. More details

A solitary figure seen from the back was a frequent motif in Romantic art. Here, he walks away from us, unaware of our gaze. In this way, we are both drawn into and shut out of the picture. Absorbed by his natural surroundings, the man is immersed in his own world.
