In this sketchily drawn angled view of a library interior, a woman is seated on a brown sofa in front of a square table covered with a green cloth. A portrait and what appears to be a ship painting hang on the wall above. A bookshelf alcove is separated from the sitting area by a column on base with a capital in the Ionic style.
