Description

Black-and-white, hip-length portrait of a woman in three-quarters view, facing the left side of the image with her face turned toward the right side. She is smiling, seated in front of a dark background, and holding a hat against her chest. She has short, wavy hair that is not pinned back, and thick bangs that cover her forehead. She is wearing a light-colored, loose, long-sleeved, knitted cardigan sweater over a lacy, white, buttoned shirt. She is also wearing a pearl necklace and a pleated skirt.
