Description   

While the identity of this sitter remains a mystery, he surely represents a musician or other performer. He holds a sheet of music and intensely regards the spectator while apparently singing or speaking. In the background, one man gestures for another to keep quiet, as if the protagonist is rehearsing or performing. The freshness of this characterization suggests that the sitter may have been a friend of the artist.
