Dehodencq used drawing as a means to record his travels throughout France, Spain, and Morocco.
Alfred Dohodencq was a prolific draftsman, often combining multiple sketches on a single page as seen here. At right, an intimate sketch of a boy—perhaps the artist’s son—appears in watercolor, alongside a cavalier drawn in pen and ink. Over the man and his horse, the artist lightly penciled in a face with closed eyes, perhaps reusing the sheet for another composition.
