Description

A full-length image of a 19th century young woman in a sumptuous blue-green patterned dress with a wide flowing sash, against a rich green background. Her head is thrown back slightly and she is looking far off, intent on some image, perhaps to do with the paper she is holding in her left hand. Her right hand and arm is akimbo and she is straight and strong and alive.
