Description The interior of a Dutch seventeenth-century living-room, with a tiled floor and beamed ceiling. In the foreground to the right, a woman is standing in front of a table. She is holding out her hand to a small dog. In the left corner of the room stands a bedstead. Against the back wall of the room, a large fireplace flanked by caryatids. The painting over the fireplace of the Madonna and child is based on a composition by Rubens (Rooses, no. 187).
