This work is a reduced impression of the coloured programme for Émile Fabre's comedy "L'Argent".   The two figures depicted are that of Henriot and Arquillière who played Monsieur and Madame Reynard.   The absence of modelling in the figures and the positioning of the place-settings brings to mind Toulouse-Lautrec's famous "Reine de Joie" poster.
