Un étrange jongleur
(A strange juggler)
Plate 5 of 6
On comparison with an existing first state proof, printed as a trail before the captions were addded and the final impressions printed, this final state is noticably different from the proof. The black areas have been lightened and layers of hatching were added to to the image to create more subtle tonal gradations.
The seemingly worried, although more manic, way in which the juggler stares up at the black sun resembles the first plate in this album, Dans mon rêve, je vis au ciel un visage de mystère.
