This etching is based on a life drawing and is oriented in the same direction. The first state of the print shows the figure against a light background, as in the drawing, but Amor experimented with a dark background in printing an impression of the third state, and then implemented the change to darkness in the following, final state. At this stage he decided he was unhappy with the way the plate had progressed and he did not print an edition.
