Description

A woman stands smiling in the middle of what still is a richly decorated room while a furniture dealer leaning on a small bookcase looks at her pensively, his pencil to his mouth, and movers take tapestries and paintings off the walls.

The caption reads in the original French: Les marchands entrèrent dans ce sanctuaire et y inventorièrent tout.

Caption based on Katharine Prescott Wormeley’s translation from A Daughter of Eve. Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1895.
