An elegantly dressed lady sits on a chaise longue ready to take tea. The table is set for four so perhaps she is waiting for the arrival of guests. In the background a man plays the piano. The sunlight is blocked out by an orange blind which provides the picture with a dazzling focal point, contrasting starkly with the bold expanses of black and green elsewhere in the composition. It is quite clear that a love of colour and design dominated this artist's approach to his work.
