The sitter appears in half-profile, facing left, her face shadowed and her hair worn up. Louisa Tyndall’s dress is light brown, edged with lace and heavily embroidered panels in a leaf design. Around her neck, held on a claret ribbon, is a heavy gold pendant, with the word ‘ROMA’ just visible. Intended to commemorate her wedding and to be viewed with the companion work, 'John Tyndall'.
