I think that the swirling of the sky is a good representation
of all his thoughts. He makes out that it is a normal life, but
deep down he's hurting. His facial expression tells all that he
is saddened by Tulla. I see in the portrait a lot more than is

I think that he is showing contempt in his life, but it also reminds
me of loneliness, he doesn't seem happy, just there as if he were

now and then everyone doesn't feel like they belong, I think he
is showing that in this painting.
