Description

A man and a couple in a close embrace are seen from the back walking the streets of a medieval city, their heads turned to look sideways at the viewer.

The caption reads in French: Faust — Ma belle demoiselle, oserais-je vous offrir mon bras et vous reconduire chez vous ?

The caption in English was taken from the translation of Faust by Bayard Taylor. New York: Arden Book Company, n.d.
