This is an oil on canvas painting of an almost full-length portrait of a woman of royalty. Her gaze is turned leftward, past the viewers. She is formally dressed in black with a very wide lace collar. The cuffs of her sleeves are also extremely wide and white. In her left hand is a handkerchief. She wears ornaments and pearls in her hair, pearl earrings, and several strands of heavy pearls around her neck beneath the wide white collar. She also wears a gold cross necklace and a very large enameled medallion pinned to her dress.
