The caption above reads:

In the living room, a bust by Marc Chabry looms in the foreground, left. A terra-cotta torso by Innocenzo Spinazzi sits on late – 18th century commode under a trompe-l’oeil painting by Johannes Leemans. Above right: A collection of 18th and 19th-century architectural drawings, hangs in the front hall; on the 18th-century Irish mahogany side table, a painting by Karl Jensen stands between two carved wood bozzeti.
