This 'merry company' scene shows a gathering of 22 male and female figures in a room with a tiled floor. They are grouped around long tables on which food and plates can be seen. In the centre, a man tilts backwards on his chair, beside him are two dogs. Several of the figures are looking out of the picture at the spectator, such as the woman with the group on the right who turns around on her chair to glance towards us.
