Description: Seated Figure with Book. This everyday scene follows the tradition of painting in Spain established by artists such as Vel?zquez in the seventeenth century. The figure of a man, placed in the foreground, is shown seated at a table reading. By showing the figure resting his head in his right hand, the artist conveyed the contemplative mood of the man while he reads.
