  • inspired by
    Gerard ter Borch (II), Vrouw leest een brief
    Netscher adopted the composition in general and the positioning of the figures in relation to each other. He also repeated the use of full-length figures, the motif of the standing woman holding a sheet of music and the seated woman leaning on a table with her head in her hand.

  • used as model for
    Frans van Mieris (I), Elegant gezelschap in een interieur
    Van Mieris adopted the subject of an elegant musical company, the use of full-length figures, the rich classicist setting, the chair in the left hand foreground as repoussoir, the bas-relief in the background, compositional elements and the motif of a bottle placed on a table.
