This painting shows two people lying in bed next to each other while gazing into one another’s eyes. The woman is on the left while the man is on the right. Blankets up to her cheek and nose cover her face. The man’s face is covered up to his chin. Both are lying on pillows and facing toward each other. The sheets and pillows are white while the headboard behind them is brown. There is also a red blanket over the sheets that can be seen at the bottom of the painting.
