This is clearly a summer scene, the furniture arranged away from the stove and an isolated easy chair is placed near a window with a view of a Gothic or neo-Gothic church spire with surrounding trees. The relatively sparse furnishings of the room indicate a sitting room attached to a bedroom. Moreover as most of the good furniture, such as the banquette is clearly from the earlier Biedermeier period, one can assume that this is the room of an elderly woman living with familiar possessions, yet updated by the mid-nineteenth century neo-rococo table on an island carpet; the extensive main carpet close-fitted to the whole room, indicative of the affluence of the owner of the house, possibly a town palace or that of an affluent burgher. Some deep-buttoned furniture shows later updating in the room with a discreet introduction of new sprung-upholstered furniture. The discreet wallpaper is a foil to the elegant pier-glass and the pictures on the walls, the large windows flooding the room with a clear northerly light.
