adjective

Having little or no money; penniless; poor.

He was an eccentric, disheveled, toothless and impecunious lifelong bachelor, an amateur poet and musician and an autodidact able to converse knowledgeably with experts in many different fields. And he was a genius draftsman, one of 18th-century France’s greatest. That’s Gabriel de Saint-Aubin (1724-80), the subject of a gripping exhibition at the Frick Collection.

—Ken Johnson “Forever Drawing the World in All Its Minuscule Detail” New York Times, November 2, 2007
