Historia

This work belonged to the collection of Thomas Agnew, in London.

Análisis artístico

The work shows the face of a friar with a white beard, looking down as if immersed in thought, in front of a reddish-grey background.

According to Gudiol, the man's head recalls the effigies of saints Peter and Paul.

Like its companion piece, A Nun, the artist's expressionistic technique is very evident in this portrait, especially in the rendering of the beard, which resembles an unfinished smudge.
