Three-quarter length, three-quarter right side portrait of a young woman in a heavy black dress, with fair hair pinned in braids across her head. She is seated in a cane backed chair at a small side table, with one elbow resting on the table, a book in one hand resting in her lap, and her head turned to face the viewer. She sits against a plain, pale background with drapes just visible to the left.
