Description: A man kneels in prayer before an altar in a bedroom decorated with flowers; people go to church and give alms to the poor in the background. The Latin superscription reads, "You will alwayhs rejoice in the evening; if the day was spent fruitfully," and the text below, "In the evening, who is soothed by clean and pure pleasure? Whoever remembers that he spent the whole day in virtue.".
