    Depicts a scene at an evening party. In the foreground, a pianist captures the attention of a number of ladies, all of whom appear to have left a room shown in the background. The latter room is completely deserted, except for two intellectual gentlemen who sit looking dejected. The caption ('Literature, Science, and Music at an Evening Party—Total Defeat of the Two Former') indicates that the ladies prefer the company of the pianist to that of the intellectuals who spout 'Literature' and 'Science'.
