A lithograph image of a group of nude men playing instruments and dancing. The right third of the image is composed of three men, one of whom is lying on the ground and one mid-dance with arms extended, done in line drawing without much detail.  The rest of the image shows three men dancing with musical instuments, one man sitting and a fifth man standing to the left side of the image.  These figures have more detail, shading and modeling. Various drink vessels are depicted in the scene as well and the figures to in the left portion of painting wear wreaths on their heads.

In this print we see a woman in a chair sitting at table. The table is in the foreground and the woman sits behind it. She is wearing a light colored dress and has shoulder length hair and the print is truncated above her eyes so we do not see the top of her head. Four saucers, two mugs, a knife, and coffee pot sit atop table. Drawing is on medium thick, smooth white wove paper.  There are very visible brush strokes across the drawing.
