Description

Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a woman in front of a dark background, facing toward her right. Her head is turned to face the viewer in three-quarters view. The source of light is in front of and to the left of the woman, and she is looking slightly downward to gaze at the viewer. Her dark, wavy hair is just below shoulder-length, and is not pinned or tied back. It is parted on the left side of her head, part of it is swept over her forehead.She is not wearing any clothes above the waist, but she is holding a dark cloth over her chest.
