Dreux's interior scenes are calm, cool, and comfortable. Like many of them, this one includes his trademark chairs and a pet (cat or dog?) in the foreground. Unlike most, the wall in the background is decorated with horizontal bands rather than having a window that looks out on the home's setting, but it still has an open curtain on the right side and several butterflies have found their way in and lit on the chairs. The couple portrayed appear to be dressed up and, with the woman holding a bouquet, may be celebrating their wedding or anniversary.
Condition: Very good. The stretcher edges have been finished with acid-free white canvas tape, giving this Haitian painting a clean, modern look.
