Looking through the keyhole is mischievous ... but in this small copper, engraved in mezzotint, aesthetic qualities prevail over moral ones. The space of the patch allows us to highlight the beauty of the eye which exerts a force of attraction for the viewer. The expression on the face reveals the surprise of being ... surprised.
