An exotic Eastern street scene, with a young lantern-maker in a long red coat and green turban, on the left, seated on a bench outside a workshop. Beside him stands a young woman in a long blue gown and gold Turkish slippers, the lower part of her face hidden by a black veil. The lantern maker is shown leaning forward with his hand outstretched, feeling her face beneath the veil. His other hand touches her wrist.
