Similarly, the house rented by the squire is presented through the eyes of Lázaro as lacking space: “Todo lo que yo había visto eran paredes, sin ver en ella silleta, ni tajo, ni banco, ni mesa, ni aun tal arcaz como el de marras” (153). Lázaro accounts for “what there is in the picture” by stating “what the picture lacks,” that is, by revealing the absence of the objects of his desire.
