This is another duplet that stretches the idea of inteactions between two poses.  In this one, the model is serious and professional on the right, and a ghost of her, or a dream of her, or a spirit not even connected to her takes up the right.  The two are very interconnected colorwise.  They are the same person, one exhausted or indifferent, and one paying attention to business.

The painting is also georgous, with a rose petal flush, and recognizable figures, but not realistic.  It is a king of tableau of female beauty versus female indifference.  Really a great piece.
