This work consists of two paintings together in a gold frame with an inscription at the bottom. The top, larger painting depicts a light-skinned, red-haired woman in green and gold robes holding a bouquet of white lilies. Six pink stars frame the left side of her head, which leans toward her right. In the background are pink flowers and several vignettes of the same woman embracing a male lover. Below the woman are three young, light-skinned, red-haired young women. The bottom, smaller painting shows the man from the background vignettes, reclining with his hands clasped above his head.
