The Appointed Hour

Figure descriptions
The corpse of a man lies at the bottom of a staircase. His lute lies next to him. An ornately dressed woman walks down the staircase, lifting the bottom of her dress. She looks ahead, not yet noticing the corpse. There are vines wrapped around the railing of the staircase. In the background, a man wearing a cape runs away from the corpse. He runs towards an archway, through which a body of water and a boat can be seen. Full-page illustration.
