Simply described by the V&A as an 'image of a man sat on the ground with his arms crossed. He wears a hat, jacket, trousers and neck-tie. In the top left corner is a sketch of a hanged man', this enegmatic etching is one of five completed by Cézanne at Dr Gachet's press during the summer of 1873 when Cézanne and Guillaumin were staying in Pontoise at the invitation of Pisarro.
