Description du catalogue
A watercolour sketch with multiple figures and text components. Central to the image is a self-portrait painted in 3/4 profile facing the left. The Artist is peering over his thick-framed glasses with a questioning glance focused in the direction of the viewer. He is wearing a light mauve collared shirt with a black pattern. Surrounding the portrait on the right side are three smaller scaled figures; a jester, king and a beggar. Just over the man's shoulder, some simple drawings, like pictographs, are depicted. In the background on the left, more smaller-scale figures are drawn; four nude women posing freely in the upper left corner, two nude men standing face-to-face in the bottom left corner, figures holding signs and a balloon-like object, and a cartoon-like sketch of figures with the words "sex" and "dialogue" worked into them. Handwritten lines of text surround the figures in some areas of the background.
