Bibliography:
- Marie-Laure Prévost and Jean-Jacques Lebel, "Du chaos dans le pinceau...", Paris Maison Victor Hugo, exhibition from 12/10/2000 - 6/01/ 2001, reproduced in colour under n°126 p 170, notice p 370.

Hugo used a coin impression (twenty four schilling?) for the circular shape. Beyond the technical process, we can relate this drawing of Hugo to the famous verse of his contemporary Nerval, "Le soleil noir de la Mélancolie".
