On the right at the edge of the table stands out a stocky, with a large head figure in. AND. Serova. Sitting comfortably and thoroughly, the artist draws something, devoted entirely to his occupation. His face is striking in concentration, calm wisdom.

In the background, on the left, those who have turned to each other are depicted and something discussing something. E. Arkhipov and n. AND. Kasatkin and the author of the canvas carefully bowed to them. The dynamism and vital conviction of the stage are due to both the diversity, character of poses, gestures, expressions of the faces of its participants, and the diagonal construction and fragmentation of the composition.
