Troubadour genre scene painting - G. Castiglione (1829-1908)
A Troubadour style painting , depicting a young musician playing a melody to a young woman sitting on a curule seat, seeming to compose a bouquet. We see a tapestry with a historical or mythological scene, included in the panelling. The place opens onto the outside, but you can't see on what, although you think of the Venetian laguna.
