This foreshortened, full-length figure is viewed from an elevated position although we seem to still look him in the eye. This slight feeling of vertigo is increased by the fractured and disjointed use of different planes (flat surfaces) set at various angles to portray what would normally be the soft rounded form of a figure. The darkly clad figure sits uneasily against the red and black background.
