About this object

Painting shows a man in a dark suit and tie standing by a table covered with a white tablecloth. On the table is a bottle of wine, a coffee pot, an open cigarette box, and a glass of wine, which is tipped over. To the right is a red arm chair on which stands many green goblins. The man's right hand is clenched. He holds the tipped wine glass and looks to the right where the head of woman appears in a cloud of mist. He appears to be frightened. The rest of the background is dark.
