About this artwork

A boy stands with an apple balanced on his head, referencing a legendary tale of a Swiss hero. The tyrant Gessler ordered William Tell to shoot the fruit off his son's head, failure to do so would cost their lives. Tell aimed his crossbow and accomplished the challenge. The scene captures the tension and anticipation of the impending shot, with vertical striped elements and geometric patterns adding a dynamic energy to the composition. The painted area measures approximately 16 x 10.5 inches. Inscribed below the artwork is the original Spanish title of the piece, El Hijo de Guillermo Tell, accompanied by the artist's signature and the year of creation.
