Moment in Time: A Legacy of Photographs | Works from the Bank of America Collection

A black and white photograph of a woman and a man sitting side by side at a table, with two half full glasses of wine in front of them. They are turned towards each other, and the woman has her arm around the man's shoulder, and is smiling. Behind them is a large mirror in which we can see them reflected.
