Gift of the Artist

A couple is portrayed on the lower level, at home, without fancy hairdo or clothing. He is talking to her while she taps her fingers on the table and looks bored. Above them is the scene he is describing, where he is enfolding her in his embrace and both are handsomely dressed; behind, a sword-wielding man has just chased away another man whose trousers are falling around his legs. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/27/95)
