Robert Louis Stevenson lies dead in Vailima, Samoa. His corpse has been laid out on the bed. His eyes are shut and his hands are arranged so they are clasped together. A quilt has been put over him and the bed decorated with large wreaths of flowers. A man wearing a suit and tie is solemnly crouched next to the bed. The room is covered in dark panelling. Some paintings hang on the walls and ornaments can be seen on some shelves and on top of a cupboard.
