Summary:
Interior of an artist's studio with a painter standing back from his easel, a palette and brushes held up in his left hand, and his right hand pointing to an unseen portrait resting on his easel. Standing beside him is his model, a man wearing western attire and holding a whip, an expression of obvious joy on his face as he bends over to examine his portrait.
