In the picture appears a young woman in the hands of a young man playing a flute. On the right, an old man and an old woman acting as her procuress.
Description from Christie's webpage: "The other motive of this painting, that of the Procuress, the matchmaker, enjoyed similar liking. Here the girl is faced with the choice between the young musician, provocatively showing her his flute, and the rich old man, who, with the help of the matchmaker, is offering her his fortune, and perhaps even marriage in the form of the document he is holding in his left hand" (from Christie's: https://www.christies.com/en/lot/lot-5741043, Archived in: https://web.archive.org/web/2021042911 5032/https://www.christies.com/en/lot/lot-5741043)
