A woman in an elaborate striped dress stands in an outdoor landscape, shading her eyes with her right hand and looking directly out at the viewer. She holds a white umbrella that dramatically frames her head (capped by a white hat) against the dark sky in the upper background of the composition. A contrasting white area of ground beneath the black sky leads into the foreground, where the woman stands at the edge of a pond surrounded by reeds and a large stalked plant.  <br />

This sketch depicts a man in profile, facing toward his right. He wears a turban and an elaborate collar. On the verso is pasted a small print of James Barry's painting "The Distribution of Premiums in the Society of Arts", originally part of a series "The Progress of Human Culture" painted between 1777 and 1784. The print is smaller and more simplified than the official print Barry made after his painting published in 1792, and probably came from a book.
