I greatly admire this ink sketch. Small hints of the artist's personality exist within the domestic scene: his hat and jacket resting beside the bed in the background, two paintings on the far wall leaning forward, the table set for a still-life. All of these elements alter or are removed from the final painted version—here they offer a strong sense of stability, cohesion for the full room.
One can easily step into the sketch, become a part of the whole image.
