"The novel that the newspaper is publishing in serialized form tells the story of a boy from an orphanage. Steinlen reinforces the drabness of the child's life by using a largely monochrome background. In English the novel's title was The Guilty Man" (Rennert, PAI-XXIV, 517)

"Steinlen was keenly attuned to the social stirrings of the era, and his drawings always reflect a sympathy for the poor and the disadvantaged, and all causes that aim at advancing simple human values"(Wine Specator 110)
