A sixteenth-century scene, showing guests seated at a long table in an outdoor courtyard. They are watching a woman dancing on the mosaic floor in the foreground who has her back to us. She is wearing a red and gold chiffon-type outfit, and is barefoot. Her arms are outstretched. On the left is a group of musicians: they play the flute, double bass, violin and lute. The dinner table is situated in the middle ground, with the host and hostess seated beneath a huge gold tapestry canopy, decorated with the family arms, and those of other noble families.
