Subject: Image of Anne Page, young Slender and Shallow, all gathered in a room at the Page house. Ann stands by the bay window, holding a rose. She stands next to a table with a set of silver on it. At center is Slender, holding his hat and gloves in his hands, he looks startled towards the viewer as Shallow stands behind him, as if whispering something in Slender's ear. The open doorway reveals two men standing outside of the room.
