Seated woman with shawl, her proper right hand is resting on an open book. Her glasses are pushed up to her forehead and she has a cushion under her feet. There is a child on the right side, in her left hand holding strings that are attached to a wooden horse and carriage toy on the floor, and in her right hand holding a toy riding crop. There is a crimson drape at the left in the middle ground.
