The artwork, kept as an artist's sketchbook, may be a triple portrait, showing one character in three variants. A lying woman is shown in the center. An erotic performance, while resting, it presents itself to the viewer and turns his objection to his side. Two opposite corners are filled with small portraits. A proud profile is shown in the upper left. Downstairs, a woman framed in three quarters, holds her hand under her chin and glances coquettishly at the viewer.
