This sculpture has been arranged in a way that highlights the face of the young man, of great expressiveness and naturalness. By their attire, one can infer the membership of the portrayed to a low social class. His face exudes energy, and the medium smile a point of vitality.
The position of the head is what brings motion to the bronze, otherwise it would be too serious for the subject matter. Highlights the great quality of the work, because, despite the fact that the bronze allows a lot of detail, it is necessary for an expert hand to get the party you deserve. The differences of qualities and the life of the boy's face is evidence of the quality of the artist who made the piece and the smelter that took its step to bronze.
Due to the disinterest in a strict geometry it could be linked to the bust with Art Nouveau, although not detected in him the characteristic features of this artistic movement. The theme of the representation of the less favored classes can be traced in the so-called Customs of the NINETEENTH century, or with the Realism (which also reflect the situation of those classes, makes a criticism in this regard).
