Faun Uncovering a Sleeping Woman (Jupiter and Antiope, after Rembrandt), from the Vollard Suite

A black print on ivory paper shows a large nude fawn kneeling as he lifts the bed covers from a nude sleeping woman on a bed on the right. Her figure is presented in a much less detailed fashion, mostly an outlined form, while the rest of the scene, the fawn and the room's interior, are rendered with greater detail.
