A woman wears a black long sleeve dress and a pink ribbon in her dark hair. She leans in to read the book, elbow resting on the table, the book propped up by two oranges. The table is set inside a red and white room with high ceilings, close to a mantle with several silver objects in a row. In the center of the table there’s a vase of large pink roses, silver and white ceramic pitchers, an empty space in the foreground, with the suggestion of another place setting on the right. Light enters from a window behind us.
