Signed, dated and noted on the back, in pencil, Grigorescu Ion, 1994, "Săptămâna a XII-a, Duminică"

The artwork figures in "Cel ce se pedepsește singur", Erwin Kessler, ICR, 2009, p. 223.
Eclectic figure of Romanian contemporary art, Ion Grigorescu is known for his dissident artwork during the '70s and for his religious series of works, inspired by the Bible.
The current artwork refers to the parable of the young, rich man looking for eternal life, hoping it can be bought with money. The man went to Jesus to ask him what can he do to obtain eternal life, but left in sadness when he was told to give away his fortune to the poor people and live a life in dedication for others.
