The image depicts a lively scene of revelry and flirtation following a masked ball during the festive season of Carnival. At the center of the image, a young man, dressed in the attire of an exotic Turk, playfully interacts with several women as they undress, shedding their masks and costumes.

The satirical tone of the engraving is evident in the title, which warns of the potential dangers of Carnival, particularly for older husbands and outdated lovers. The image serves as a commentary on the mischievous and often scandalous nature of the festivities, which could lead to infidelity and other indiscretions. The intricate details of the hand-colored engraving showcase the fashionable attire of the time, with the women wearing elegant gowns and the young man donning an ornate turban and a flowing robe. The use of vibrant colors adds to the lively and entertaining atmosphere of the scene. Overall, "Return from the Masked Ball" is a fascinating glimpse into the lifestyle and entertainment of the Empire period, offering a glimpse into the mischievous and often scandalous nature of Carnival celebrations.
