This painting done in oil on canvas is romantic in tone and suffused with feeling. Surrounded by exotic flowers and fruits, she is not in the lush surroundings in thought. The rich clothes and the milieu suggest, the woman belongs to a rich princely family. The clothes are worked upon by rich pearls on the finest silks. She wears a long shirt secured at the waist with a sash. Beneath that she wears bottle green coloured full skirt. She wears simple jewellery but flowers in her hair. A wisp of a curl falls on her forehead, trying to reach her bow shaped eyebrow. The beautiful eyes are lost in thoughts of her beau, whose framed picture she holds in her hand.
On other side of her are huge vases holding bunches of flowers. On a table in front of her lie a beautiful bowl of exotic fruits. The flowers, the fruits, fail to excite the girl. Her only silent companion is a small bird perched on the flowers. Thick velvet drapery hang on the upper left corner of the painting. The face has a deep, shy sensuality, and the eyes a dreamy quality.
