High society at leisure is the subject of this delightful 19th-century oil on canvas. Genre scenes such as this that are centered on the ideals of bourgeois life were highly sought after in their age, combining fantasy with reality, sensuality with sensibility and, above all, luxury and sophistication. In this composition, the artist portrays a handsome group of society gentlemen and ladies enjoying everything their affluent position has to offer. From the flowing lacy gowns to the extravagant decor of the room, no detail has been overlooked.
