Description
Photo taken of an unidentified couple standing in front of a painting, possibly at an art exhibit. The woman is dressed in black; her coat has lace at the collar and cuffs as well as a large velvet bottom panel. She wears a black hat with feathers cascading down one side, and black heels with silver buckles. The man is dressed in a black suit, white shirt, black tie and black shoes with tan spats. The portrait is of two women: a nude female sitting on a couch with her robe draped over her feet, a bowl of fruit next to her; the second woman, dressed in black and holding an open fan, stands behind the couch facing the first. The painting has a signature on the lower right that appears to read: "Vyschal". It is unclear if the gentleman pictured is the artist.
