Inferring With Art: A Man

Students will make several inferences based on the details in this painting.

Download a large version of the painting here. It's important not to reveal the title though!


  1. First, we just notice details in the painting.
  2. Then, students will make three inferences - one must be about what this man's job is.
  3. Finally, I reveal the painting's title and challenge students to make the ultimate inference: write the poem that this man is writing!
