The work is made in watercolor and tempera on a small (smaller than A4) sheet of paper. It is a vivid example of Byzantine Revival (“Rénovation Byzantine”), given that the figure is reminiscent of what we are used to seeing in icons. The background and image are gray and green. This is a waist-length image of a girl. The elongated figure is depicted right-side to the viewer. Her head is bowed while both arms are bent at the elbows with her hands raised. On the back of the sheet, there is a watercolor sketch of a man painted in warm colors. The man is depicted with a cello.
