A cellist and a violinist, probably amateur musicians, are shown practicing in an artist’s studio, using easels as music stands. Whether Homer painted "The Studio" during his visit to Paris in 1866–67 or later, in New York, the canvas has a French character. Bohemian life provided a wealth of material for painters and writers in France during this period. Studio scenes and musical performances were popular subjects for members of the French avant-garde, and this sketchy painting has been compared to works by Edgar Degas.
