Description

Black-and-white, bust-length portrait of a woman in three-quarters view, turned toward the left side of the image. She is seated in front of a dark background, and wearing a white hat with a small brim, decorated with three squares made of darker fabric. She has short, dark hair that is slightly visible from underneath her hat, and she is wearing dark lipstick and eye makeup. She is wearing a light-colored shirt under a sweater of the same shade that has a deep V-neckline.
