Quartet in concert
The present painting features two women in song at center, and a young flutist behind them. To the right is a young man singing along and perhaps directing the group with his gestures. The charming scene is full of elegant details which reinforce the extravagance of the setting, including a gilt table, luxurious curtains and fabrics in the clothing, and a sculpture in a garden setting beyond.
Raoux repeats the motif of the two women at center in another painting, now in the Musée de Montpellier. In that work, there is a giltwood piano open in the right foreground, and the jewelry and hairstyle of the seated woman are slightly different. Another painting more focus on two ladies is in private collection.
