A troubled young man strikes a pensive pose in a large and elaborate interior space stuffed with giant pieces of period furniture. Cornice at ceiling with broad bas-relief below. Paintings, portraits, Religious or otherwise.The young esthete is in the company of a faithful black dog (lying at his feet) and is lounging midst old books and rolls of presumably- drawings or maps. Hand colored. (Jim Hahn 11/15/94)
