A drawing in graphite on white paper depicts nine figures posing for a portrait in an interior. The room is furnished with an upholstered stool and chair, a piano, and two busts on columns. On the left of the page is a standing woman in an ankle-length dress with a lyre guitar. Seated on the upholstered stool before her is a girl in dress and pantalettes holding a bouquet. At the center of the page is a woman in a long dress seated in the upholstered chair. An adolescent boy in formal dress stands behind her with his arm around the chair back. Two children are seated on the floor at either side of the seated woman. On the left a child reads from a page in the seated woman’s lap, and on the right a boy holds a toy drummer. To the right of the seated woman are three girls in long dresses. The first stands behind the seated woman’s chair, with one hand at her waist and the other on the chair back. The second leans on the piano chair, looking left. The third is seated at the piano, with her hands on the keys looking behind her toward the seated woman at center.
