Full length figure of a young woman engrossed in a slim book which she holds in her left hand, her right arm held across her body. The woman wears a coral coloured robe underneath sheer white drapery which she gathers at her arms. Her hair is pinned up on her head, with a middle parting beneath a yellow head scarf. She has three strings of beads around her neck. A single daffodil or narcissus lies at her bare feet next to a woven red and white rug on the floor.
