說明:
  Although the blue smoke is used to heighten the expressive effect of the face and hand, it almost seems to be acting as a frame: from the wide, vacuous white collar and the traces of yellow on the right temple and forehead, down to the right sleeve. Streaks of red mark the taut, brazen hand. The purpose of this effect, I presume, is to draw focus into the precision of the face (penetrating gaze) and hand (firm yet nervous). The never-ending depth of the background contrasts with, and seems just as important to, the contrasting focus of the foreground. This providing a distinct immediacy to the eyes and the hand with cigarette. I've looked into the painting for a long while, especially into Munch's eyes; his stance and stare seem to be resisting my examination.
