In a bedroom of The Bagnio, the mortally-wounded Earl leans on a table, the countess kneeling before him with clasped hands. Behind her on the right Silvertongue escapes through the window. On the left the watchmen stand in the doorway with startled expressions. The floor is strewn with clothing including a hooped petticoat, masks, the countess's shoes and her stays. The painting above the door, the mural on the back wall, and the portrait near the window illustrate the theme.
