About the object

The figure of the fortune-teller woman provides the title for the painting. She is the main player here, who lays out the cards for her young visitor and tells him his future. It is possible that Kirner was portraying Smith-Lene from Furtwangen. Apparently, he knew this fortune-teller personally.
