A sensual representation of two women. In order to preserve the aura of mystery, they are shown with their backs to the viewer, one is looking at him over the shoulder, while the other, despite the turned face, has his eyes lowered. The women are almost naked, one is covered with a shawl and the other is holding a fan in a gloved hand.
