"What wonderful news!" the toast to a woman rings over the crowd of merrymakers, music, and animated conversation. The liveliness of this scene is conveyed through both color and the figures which appear to move - the woman touching her hair, her husband's proud look, the gentleman reaching forward, the friend raising a wine bottle over her head.
