A nude woman faces away from the viewer and is lying on rumpled sheets. She is lying on her left side with her knees bent and at nearly the same height as her hips; she is nearly in the fetal position. Her hair is pulled back into a loose bun and her head and shoulders are resting on a large pillow. Rumpled clothing is in the foreground of the image, piled in the lower left corner.
