Communicated through suggestive gestures, carnal desires that are often either entirely denied or suppressed by their proprietors are collected and decoded by Tamayo into aesthetic arguments. The present painting, an eloquent example of this accepted practice, reveals an evocative composition where the archetypal figure of a lady in the process of undressing is surprised by a libidinous voyeur who looks with indiscreet and insistent delight into her bedroom.
The atmosphere of the room has been impregnated with a bright pink atmosphere, further evoking the desire of the voyeur and the 'apparent' shame of the one observed. The warm, sensual atmosphere of the interior contrasts with the cooler gray sky. Outside the indispensable moon, a well known plastic symbol of eroticism associated with all that is pleasurable. In the forefront, a chair, a recurrent motif from Tamayo's youth, unfolds the woman's clothing while retaining her sculptural volume.
