The artist couple lies snuggled together on a white surface. In a harlequin costume with a wide collar and closed eyes, the person in the foreground dominates the scene. She hides the person behind her, of whom only the face and the two arms can be seen. Both hold objects in their hands: on the one hand a fan and on the other hand a stick that traces the diagonal of the picture with the forearms and thus determines the direction of the gaze. The unusual composition enlivens the picture and creates an intimate relationship with the sitter.
