Sketch of a woman draped in fabric over her head to just above her feet. Her left arm is covered and the right crosses in front and her hands rests on her hip. Her breasts are exposed and she looks to her right. The drawing looks to be a study for statuary. There is a similar less developed drawing on the back.
