Description A woman, wearing a nightgown with her shoulder exposed, places a strand of rosary beads on a devotional image mounted on the wall beside her bed. In this instance Plassan suggests a late 17th-century interior, showing a high-backed chair upholstered in needlepoint and a Spanish embossed leather wall-covering.
