Black-and-white portrait of a woman in full-length, three-quarters view, standing in front of a white, shadowed wall. The woman has dark hair that is partially covering her right eye and tied into two long braids. She is wearing an ankle-length, satin dress that is gathered at the hem, and she is leaning forward slightly, pulling her skirt up to show her ankles. She is wearing black stockings and black shoes.
