In the second scene, the atmosphere is somewhat more relaxed. Drinks have been poured, and the gentleman seated before the hearth inspects his glass. The trictrac board, a popular game of chance, is in use. In the right foreground, two guests examine a portrait of their host. One of them has boldly climbed onto a chair for a closer look, but not before placing a napkin on the seat.
