The drawing in graphite on white paper depicts two women seated in an interior. On the left is a woman in profile seated on a cushion facing right, her head and gaze turned toward the viewer. She wears a long dress with gauzy ornamentation above the skirt, and a brimmed hat with ribbon and a boa. To the right of the page is a woman turned at three quarters, seated on an upholstered wood chair with her feet resting on the cushion the woman to the left is seated on. She wears a long dress and ornamented shawl over her arms. She wears a frilled cap of lace and tulle, beneath which hair in dark curls is visible. Her left arm rests on an armrest, and her right hand holds the left hand on the woman seated on the cushion.
