This painting depicts beautiful young women reading and reciting to one another within a relaxed grand interior. The use of such a grand interior gave De Jonghe the opportunity to exercise his observational and painterly skills with great flair. In this interior there are beautiful rugs on the floor and a book case full of leather bound books. There is an older woman in dark clothes stood at the door to the room. It may be that the woman is the mother or teacher of the young women and is checking on them and listening to their reading and conversation.
