Análisis artístico

For the artistic and technical analysis of the complete series, see Maja and Celestina.

This miniature shows a short bust portrait of a man, seen in profile. He is greedily eating a bunch of leeks. His appearance is similar to that of the men represented in some of the artist's late drawings, Man's Head and Men's Heads.
