The lady is dressed in white garments with a red jacket trimmed with white fur, one of her white shoes lies on the floor before her. The servant is dressed mainly in brown, with a bodice and a white shawl. A low wooden chair stands in the bottom right corner, with a brush and cloth lying discarded on the seat, a hexagonal object on the floor nearby.
