The Drunkard was painted a few months before the completion of I and the Village. It was among the first paintings Chagall exhibited at the Paris Salon des Independants, which opened on March 20, 1912. So, presumably, it was made at the turn of 1911-12, and this agrees with the date Chagall has given it. It was preceded by a small gouache, made while Chagall was working on a series of interiors showing a single figure near a table - small sketches in which the tranquillity of the room forms an emotional contrast to the uneasy agitation of the human figure.
