A grayscale painting depicting the string quartet of the Romantic composer Joseph Joachim performing in a crowded chamber music hall. On stage, the four members (Carl Halir, Emanuel Wirth, Joseph Joachim, Robert Hausmann) are positioned, each with their instrument (two violins, one viola, and one cello), in front of a music stand with scores.
