Description

A languid young woman is sitting on a bench between two men, one kissing her on the cheek, the other crying with his face in his hand.

This lithograph is an illustration to Les trois sœurs (Three sisters), a short story by Philarète Chasles.

The caption reads in the original French: Je vais là où sont mes sœurs […] Adieu!… Embrassez-moi une fois avant de mourir.
