Abstract:
A young man lounges against a young woman, as they sit on a sofa; she holds his right hand in hers. With the left hand he pours wine into her glass which she holds with her left as they exchange amorous looks. They are both partially disrobed. On the table in front of them is a bunch of grapes and an apple, an upturned glass, and playing cards.
