Information about author
The portrait represents a bust-length figure of an elderly woman; a full-faced image of the woman is turned three quarters to the viewer's right. The woman is wearing a bonnet, which is tied around her neck with a long ribbon; curly hair can be seen from under it. She is dressed in some pieces of clothes (maybe a cloak) of light color and with a wide collar. The woman's face is calm; her thin lips are stiff. The gaze of her eyes under wide eyelids is directed forward. The background of the image is depicted in light colors with no landscape or other details.
In the right bottom corner of the work there is the author's inscription "AG" and date 1867.
