Her body is facing left, but she is smiling and looking right over her shoulder to the left of the viewer. Her left hand rests on her left knee, and her right is on a book that is open on the grass beside her. A doll in a blue dress is in front of the book. The pink of her dress is echoed by a bow on the right of her hair and a blossom by her feet in what appears to be water.
