A female nude reclines on a couch, leaning towards the left, face looking down. Her head is supported by her right hand; her left hand, holding up drapery behind her, is grasping the back of the couch. Her right leg dangles over the edge of the couch while the left leg rests on the cushion.

Nude Model Reclining
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
A female figure, dressed in diaphanous green drapery with a purple and green cap over her curly blond hair, holds a fan as she reclines on a cloth-covered couch. Her left leg is up on the couch while her right leg and arm drape over the front of the couch; a patterned pillow seen near her left leg mirrors the colors on the fan. The wall behind them also appears to be draped with fabric. On the wall to the right is a flower-like symbol that is the artist's "butterfly" signature
James Abbott McNeill Whistler (American (North American))
Draped Figure Reclining
1893 – 1894
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
A man reclines on a carpet or cloth, and looks up at two figures above him. On the right, a deity sits cross-legged on a pedestal with a canopy over its head. To the left, another figure faces the deity, also on a pedestal carpet. He appears to be naked, and raises his in gesture towards the deity. A metal lamp or ewer rests below him, on what appears to be an abstract mountain, on which the reclining man also lies. He holds what may be prayer beads, and wears robes with stripes and his covered head rests on a pillow.
