Description
Photograph of the painting "Queen Louise" by Gustave Richter, depicting a woman descending an outdoor staircase, [s.d.]. The young woman is pictured at center in a simple dress that appears to be made of silk and sports a floral filigree pattern at its hem. She holds her right arm to her chest while a long, dark length of sable hangs from the crook of her elbow. Her hair and jaw are wrapped in a thin kerchief. A portion of column can be seen behind her, while to the left, several busts can be seen on their own pedestals. The rest of the background appears to be forest.
