Painting is shown in the scene of intimate dialogue between countess Ellen Olenska and Newland Archer.

Fernand Khnopff (1858-1921) began his career when Realism was the most advanced style in Belgium, and he always maintained a commitment to verisimilitude in the details of his works. However, Realism was not enough for him: he insisted that art must suggest the essential mystery behind the visible facts and facades. It was as a painter of symbols and allegories that Khnopff became famous.
