A Man Seated on the Edge of a Table

Known for his red chalk studies of cavalry men, this work is characteristic of Parrocel's drawn oeuvre. Casually seated at the edge of a table with his arms crossed, the man gently smirks at something he sees. His costume suggests that he is a soldier, who has discarded his hat and weapon while he rests from his arduous labor.
