The painting contains a fragment of Goethe's "Faust", in which the hero meets Margaret for the first time. He proposes to walk her home. This time the girls refuses this time, but in the context of the drama as a whole, we know how this seemingly innocent flirt will end. The man shown on the painting has a mephisto-like look of an evil spirit on a nocturnal hunt. A bored and thrill seeking yuppie, on his way to a gentleman's club.
