This parody of an advertisement for Rumford stoves, shows a young woman warming herself by the fireplace, her underwear partially lifted, exposing her buttocks. In her left hand she holds the Gothic novel The Monk, written by Matthew Gregory Lewis. The interior contains several references to love, such as the painting with Danaë on the wall, the mantel clock with putti, and two open books entitled: The Kisses and Economy of Love.
