This and the previous drawing—the back view (1955.1.76) are rendered in the same manner, with more modeling and shading than the rest of the Old Orchard series. Using diagonal strokes and rubbing, Hartley's intent here seems to be a more developed graphic representation of the muscleman concept. As is so often the case with these figures, while the hands are big, the rendering of them is scant—sometimes merely elongated single lines and one arm is longer than the other.
