Sketch of courtship. Although it is difficult to call it courtship - the girl is busy with work, and the young man is sitting, carelessly crossed ones legs, as if his visit itself is a big sign of attention, which she should be happy with. The careless pose of the young man echoes with a somewhat careless technique of writing the picture. The figure of the girl, who is focused and concentrated on her work, seems to have been drawn more clearly and neatly.
