Description

This drawing, presumably a study for a painted portrait, depicts a seated woman, dressed in a long gown and fashionable hat. Her casual pose, with one hand placed nonchalantly on her knee, her right elbow resting on the back of a chair, and a gaze unfocused on something outside the scene, gives the image an intimate informality.
