Description

Subject Matter:

Two nude women.

Physical Description:

This scene of two nude women depicts one woman in the center of scene on a circular rug, leaning against a couch or bed where the other woman lays. The center woman is shown with her torso straight on towards the viewer, her knees bent and pointing to the left, and her head tilted down and to the right. The woman laying down is shown with her head closest to the viewer, so we can only see the top of her head, her shoulders, her chest, and her hip. The background is mostly shadow, with small bits of light showing through some drapes.
