Drawing of vertical format made by long and short strokes made with nib and some gouache. The image is starred by a seated anthropomorphic figure that occupies almost the entire composition. The shapes and parts of his body bear similarities to a voluptuous woman. In the upper right corner, just outlined, there is another human representation on a smaller scale.

Curious fact:

Throughout the history of art, aesthetics has been related to proportions. In some times preference has been given to slender and athletic figures, as in ancient Greece and the Renaissance. At other times the voluptuousness has been the canon, as in the case of the Baroque or more recently in the work of the Colombian artist Fernando Botero.
