The Logicians

Figure descriptions
Two men sit on opposite sides of a small table and appear to be engaged in an intense conversation. The poem caption identifies the men as logicians. The man on the left frowns and holds one finger to his nose. The man on the right grimaces and stares at the other man while counting on three fingers. On the table in front of them, there is a quill and an ink pot, a book, glasses, and multiple sheets of paper. There are additional books behind the man on the right—on the back of his chair and on the floor. There is an open lattice window beside the table. Tree branches are visible through the window pane on the left side. On the right side, a hand reaches up and holds a sheet of paper along the edge of the window sill. Two scrolls hang on either side of the window beside the two men. Full-page illustration contained within a double-ruled border.
