A woman sits up in bed pulling back a curtain. After Rembrandt's painting 'A Woman in Bed' which currently resides in the Scottish National Gallery. It is widely agreed that the model for this painting was Rembrandt's partner Hendrickje Stoffels (1626–63). However the Scottish National Gallery think this is not a portrait of her but the subject is of the Old Testament Apocryphal Book of Tobit, and this is Tobias' wife Sarah on their wedding night cheering him on to defeat the demon Asmodeus.
