Abstract:
A young lady sits reading a book, her right elbow resting on a table on which lie two other volumes. Behind her is a drapery swathed column and an open window through which a rose bush and trees are visible. A large pot of geraniums stands before the window. The young lady wears a black hat with a blue ribbon at the back, an open robe with a large breast knot over a patterned fringed skirt. Over her robe is a striped apron and her shoes are buckled, two-tone with Italian heels.
