Abstract:
In a well-furnished parlor, a woman (left) sits playing at a harpsichord as she turns to gaze with admiration at young military officer who looks at her with intimacy; an older officer to her left scowls at them, his hand in the breast of his vest. On the right another young woman leans her head in her hand, a bored, annoyed look on her face; her elbow is resting on a table on which sits her sewing basket; in her right hand she holds a scissors, her arm thrown back over the back of the upholstered chair. On the floor at her feet is a book "Tirumph of temper." A dog sits at her feet looking up at her. On the back well is a portrait of old woman. On the mantel is a sculpture of a roman chariot and horses.
