Description
Like a harlequin in a painting by Picasso, this fellow combines a cheerfully patterned costume with a poignant expression. The vivid triangular designs on his face contrast with his wistful expression. For all the pleasure we might take in his bright finery, he seems to be warning us that no one is free from the occasional melancholy moment. - (PF.0702)
