Abstract:
An elderly woman in spectacles sleeps in a chair, a jug and glass on a table beside her. Under the table, sits a cat; a book lies open on the floor at her feet. A pair of scissors hangs from a chain on her lap. Behind the high backed chair, a man embraces a young woman who has her finger to her lips to quiet the spectator.
