Caricature of a man (identified as Francois-Pierre Guillaume Guizot (1787-1874), the most famous intellectual exponent of the July Monarchy). The figure is in deep meditation. His proper left leg is crossed over his right and his arms are crossed, resting on his lap. There is a briefcase to the left of the man on the bench.
