Here Tiffany depicted his second wife, Louise, reading on a chaise in his top-floor studio at the 72nd Street and Madison Avenue house, with clusters of three columns and a grand piano in the background. Tufted upholstery in a deep green with gray-blue and greenish yellow velvet pillows are sumptuously rendered in this delicate pastel, a medium that displays Tiffany's dexterity as an artist.
