Abstract:
"A handsome mulatto woman walks from left to right and slightly towards the spectator. Her hair is a mop of carefully arranged curls. She wears a high-waisted, trailing dress, defining her limbs, with a shoulder-scarf, bare arms and neck, and much quasi-barbaric jewellery. On the wall (right) half of a picture of 'Havanna' is visible. A patterned carpet completes the design."--British Museum online catalogue.
