On the recto is a landscape-orientation sketch in red chalk of a figure in prayer. The drawing is composed of just the model's torso, from shoulders to hip. The figure's arms are slightly outstreched with palms together in prayer.<br />
On the verso is a portrait-orientation sketch in red chalk of a male nude, heightened in white. The figure is shown on his knees with legs just past shoulder-distance apart; the figure leans backwards, his chin raised and head titled away from the viewer. His left arm is stretched above his head and reaches right; the right arm extends straight out to the right, ending at the elbow. Below the man is a study of a leg bending at the knee.<br />
