About the object

A young man in pilgrim's clothing importunes his lover: does she want to set sail with him for Cythera, the legendary island of love? We know this pair of pilgrims from Watteau's famous painting »Le Pèlerinage à l'île de Cythère« (The Embarkation to Cythera) - then a very popular theme in literature and theatre.
