The original destination of the work is unknown. It is an unfinished painting, depicted in the iconography of the penitent hermit with a very emblematic expression. He is kneeling, his face facing upwards. The muscles are dry but snappy, the tendons visible. The bust is arched and dark behind the collarbones, the plastic gesture of the outstretched arm seems to investigate the surrounding space, the leg stretched forward, the head hollowed out and bony, foreshortened in its twist to the right. The figure emerges with great power.
