This image shows a woman with a large expanse of dark hair, with her head turned to the side, and a background including a bookshelf and decorative flowers on the wall. Her dress is noticeably frilly and includes a large bow in the middle. The use of black and white space is striking and effectively done here, because they are used in equal measure and are nicely alternated across the page. The features in the image have the impression of being cut off on the sides, as there is not one thing that is shown in full profile.
