Half-length right side portrait of a middle-aged lady wearing black, seventeenth-century dress with a white, sheer, widely-undulating ruff and white cuffs in a finely creased sheer fabric. A narrow white band across her forehead forms the edge of her black wimple-style headcovering. Her hands are positioned in front of her waist, with the fingers of her right hand held in an elegant gesture. She has short, dark hair and a slightly double chin. There is an oval painted frame in dark colours, with a neutral background.
