Object:Studio portrait of a woman and a man in folk attire
Description:Full length shot of a young woman and a man standing hand in hand in front of a painted canvas backdrop, which creates the illusion of the scene being set in nature. The woman is wearing traditional attire with a belt with coins. She is richly adorned with necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, and with flowers/greenery in her hair. She is holding a basket with two books in her left hand. The man is wearing light-coloured traditional attire with a fur cap and an embroidered belt, and he is holding a stick in his hand. Behind the couple one can see the stands designed to help the models stand up straight.
