 Physical Description/Subject Matter
A young woman kneels in the foreground of the image with her right arm extending down to a magazine. Her left-hand rests on the grass beside her. She is dressed in a long white dress with a yellow scarfed tied around her shoulders and a white sailor collar draping down her back. She has a ponytail falling down her back, with a white bonnet atop her head. The grass and bushes in the background have small delicate brushstrokes with little dapples of light on the ground, indicating that the woman likely sits under a shaded tree. The serene and peaceful scene offers a glimpse into leisure during the early 1900s.
