Three-quarter length portrait of a woman seated in a wooden chair. The sitter has brown hair tied away from her face, her head tilted slightly to the left whilst gazing to the right with a distant expression on her face. She wears a lilac coloured dress with a plunging neckline and short, wide sleeves, which reveals a white blouse at the cuffs that is also ornamented with a large, oval brooch with a dark stone at the neck; she also wears a long string of striking red beads.
