Description

On a simple street, which runs alongside a building with a dirty wall, Yorick walks with ease and confidence, in profile, looking forward, one hand in his pocket while the other holds a cigarette. On the wall, on the left, some childish drawings - which enjoyed interest in those years, as evidenced by Corrado Ricci's lecture on Children's Art of 1885 and his subsequent volume of 1887 - signed Ada, the stepdaughter of Corcos; on the right verses dictated by Yorick himself (who ironically attribute the subject's features to the painter's poor skill). Not the classic official portrait, therefore, but a snapshot drawn with rather broad and quick brushstrokes but with attention to detail, in which irony prevails, one of Yorick's qualities.
