The painting shows the atmosphere of Viennese and Munich taverns before World War I. This splendid pastel brings to us the colours and dress of the early 20th century. The foreground features the head and shoulders of a young blond lady with a hat. The woman holds a puppy and the painter rendered its head en face. A lady with a dog is a frequent motif in Betta Vukanović’s painting. The background shows a part of the tavern hall and guests sitting in it. The colour scheme is dominated by ochre hues. Signed lower right: "B.V.".
