A chiaro-scuro painting. In the shadows, a very shaded figure, very dark, a creature of the moon, that of the servant. She occupies the left part of the painting. Set off against her, a creature of the sun, mottled by the white fur and the yellow bed jacket, sublimated by an earring as in the YOUNG GIRL WITH TURBAN.
