This carefully constructed, artful tableau is specifically emblematic of the Eynards' lives. A portfolio of drawings on a footstool at the left of Madame Eynard denotes her talent as an amateur artist, a basket of flowers signifies her interest in gardening, and an upholstered chair symbolizes her skill in the decoration of the Eynards' houses. The painting to Jean-Gabriel Eynard's left represents his art collections, the top hat characterizes his dandyism, and the folding camp chair commemorates his travels as a financier and diplomat.
