Summary expansion
The first six watercolors, rendered in vibrant colors and fine detail, portray a man and a woman passing the time together playing music, writing and drawing, reading, and talking. One painting shows two women and a man playing a board game, possibly mah-jong. The final two are erotic watercolors in which the couple frolics outdoors on a blanket spread on the ground. The woman's feet are bound in pre-revolutionary style
