Full-length nude study of a seated female figure, in profile, facing to the right. The head faces down and towards the viewer, and the eyes are cast down. The figure sits on the edge of a low chair and leans back. The right elbow rests on the arm of the chair to support her weight. The right heel rests against the bottom of the chair. The left foot rests on a low surface, possibly a cushion, on the ground in front of the chair. The chair is lightly sketched in.
