Scene in a painter's studio. A naked woman poses for a painter [frame scan 1]. He sends her away. A second woman enters the studio, undresses and poses with a spear and bow following the painter's instructions [frame scan 2]. He sends her away. A third woman enters the studio, undresses and poses. A well-to-do couple enters the studio to see the painter's picture – a reclining nude. The naked woman hides behind a folding screen, where she stands snickering and laughing [frame scan 3] until the husband discovers her, then sits by her and hugs her [frame scan 4]! The wife subsequently discovers her unfaithful husband and the woman behind the screen. In the final scene, the husband begs his wife's forgiveness! End title (green).

Probably not a Saturn-Film since there's no Saturn logo visible in the scenery. Possibly a French production.

Filmarchiv Austria apparently has a shorter copy of this same film in their possession and consider it to be a Saturn Film dating from 1908. It has the feeling of a Saturn-Film, but as was previously stated it does not have a visible logo.
