DESCRIPTION:  References: Pennigar 78, Trotter 44. In very good condition (some marginal soft rippling), with wide margins, the full sheet. Printed by George C. Miller, with the FRANCE watermark. Archival mounting (mylar hinging between acid-free board). A fine, fresh impression.

According to Pennigar the title translates roughly to "Buddy! Aren't you ashamed of yourself!" The title refers to the composition: the well-groomed man with his foot up in the carriage passes a group of naked little boys. In 1928 Biddle was immersed in issues of social class and equality (as he was for much of his life); he visited Mexico with Diego Rivera in this year, and made a number of lithographs of Mexican subjects.

Hombre is one of a number of Biddle lithographs in our inventory.
