Clowns are frightening, they invoke a certain fear in many children, while others love them. The children that are afraid of clowns are the smart ones, the ones that think for themselves.

I think that the swirling of the sky is a good representation of all his thoughts. He makes out that it is a normal life, but deep down he's hurting. His facial expression tells all that he is saddened by Tulla. I see in the portrait a lot more than is just there.

I think that he is showing contempt in his life, but it also reminds me of loneliness, he doesn't seem happy, just there as if he were taken from a different background and placed in this one. I don't think that he belongs in this picture, kind of like life: every now and then everyone doesn't feel like they belong, I think he is showing that in this painting.
