In a strong social indictment, Rouault presents a trial attorney carelessly turning his back on his client once sentence has been pronounced.

"First, his preliminary drawing is reproduced on the copper plate by the photomechanical process . . .  He then uses almost every instrument known to the engraver and every acid known to the etcher in order to render to his satisfaction the tones and values of his unique images."
-James Thrall Soby on Rouault's Miserere
