The head and upper torso of a coquettish young woman, seen against a plain, deep-green background. She is depicted in three-quarter view to the right, her head tilted at an angle, with the left hand holding aside her unbuttoned dress to reveal a white petticoat beneath; with her right hand, she holds up the necklace she is wearing, which matches the bracelet around her wrist. She is depicted with long, deep red hair, which is gathered behind her ear with a clasp in the form of a spiral decorated with pearls; the necklace is made of alternate red and gold coloured beads with a pink heart-shaped pendant, translucent and edged with gold, and the bracelet is red with a gold clasp. The red beads look like coral. Her dress is russet red with decorative stripes, has golden buttons at the cuffs and down the bodice, and a fur trim along the inside edges of the sleeves.
