In this painting, the two artists Yakovlev revive the classical form of the portrait. In the early 1910's artists played in the "House of interludes" in St. Petersburg in A. pantomime Schnitzler's "Scarf Columbine": Yakovlev in the role of harlequin, the two artists in the role of Pierrot. Their double self-portrait – tribute to the passion theatre.
