Description:'The time is out of joint ...' etc. The quotation accompanies the lithograph but may not, of course, have been the original basis for Lehmann's oil painting. A Christ-like, near full length Hamlet with long auburn hair, a long black cloak wrapped around him. He has a beard and is lit from above left. He looks slightly downwards as if in deep thought. The influence of conventional religious art is unmistakable, only the black cloak distinguishing this from many a representation of Christ. He wears a gold ring on his left ring finger.
