Description

Black-and-white portrait of a woman, from the waist up, who is facing toward her right. Her head is turned to face the viewer in three-quarters view, and she is standing in front of a light-colored background. Her lips are slightly parted as though she is speaking, and she is wearing a white hat that is pulled down over her forehead. Her short, dark hair is slightly visible from under her hat, and she is wearing a white, turtleneck shirt with long sleeves.
