In the foreground a man perches on a high stool which has a cloth draped over it. He holds a reed flute as if playing, he wears a small loin covering. In the centre to the left sits a woman in Edwardian dress. She sits before an easel, her right arm raised in an action of drawing or painting. Behind her a full-length but small-scale sculpture or plaster cast of a male figure.
