Untitled [Man Crying a River)[1] (2003) is a photomontage by Teun Hocks first published in New York Times Magazine, March 23, 2003 to illustrate the article “The Melodramatic Moment” by Daniel Mendelsohn (pp. 40–43).

"At Art Brussels, around 2005-6, I saw an almost life-size painting of a man in a trench coat weeping: out of his handkerchief came tears, these tears formed a puddle at his feet, which subsequently became a brook, a river and finally to the right of him: a waterfall. A terribly funny picture. Humor is one of the things I appreciate most in contemporary art. It’s wonderful when a painting has the power to make you laugh out loud." --Jan Willem Geerinck
