Man Walking on a Road


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description A bearded man in the costume of an ancient Greek traveler trudges down a road through a mountainous landscape. In front, there is a deep crevice, and behind him are strewn corpses. The drawing may show an episode from the Bible, but the specific subject of this melancholic scene has yet to be identified.
