Information about author
Two riders are depicted in an impressionistic manner, one on a lean, tailless horse, the rider himself also quite thin, with a spear in his hand and a grey-green cloak thrown over his shoulders. He moves into the back of the picture, the other is riding a donkey, rather rounded in stature. The men move along a stony ochre-blue road, as if in different directions, in front of them a grey-black dog clinging frighteningly to the ground. Behind, to the left, a field of yellow-brown tones is depicted, the road narrows to the right edge of the painting, avoiding a tree. Above the scene, the sky stretches in violet-blue and bluish-grey tones. The artist has succeeded in conveying not only the literary subject but also its sarcastic nature, through the moody and quirky landscape and amusing characters of different physiques and in funny clothes.
