Information about author
The upper part of the work resembles an architectural arch. One can see two young teenage girls; they are wearing white dresses girded with ribbons that are tied behind their backs. The girl on the left is shorter; her shoulder-length hair is framed by a headband (?). The gaze is directed at the viewer. The girl on the right is older, she is looking down. Her hair is combed back, there is a neat hair parting in the middle. Between the girls there is a large figure of a short-haired dog (Great Dane ?). It is black while its paws and chest are white; the neck of the dog is decorated with a massive braided collar with a tassel. The dog's left paw is raised. The girl on the left is holding the dog with her both hands. Children's figures are depicted in the background of a gallery decorated with two landscape paintings. The floor, on which the characters are depicted, is of light color; it is reflecting the figures’ shadows.
In the left lower part of the work there is the author's inscription "AG" and "Pani Dzieduszycki 1866".
