Trop tard! more
A young man, barefoot and dressed in rags, is half-kneeling, his head in his hands, at a bench in front of an enclosed bed, on which sleeps, or perhaps is dead, an old man. A priest holding a book looks disdainfully at the boy, who by the walking-bag and hat on the ground next to him has clearly hurried to arrive.
The picture has also been entitled, La Retour, the Return; this has been linked to the return of the prodigal son, although the painting does not seem to fit the Biblical story of that name very well.
