Allegory of spring. Half portrait of a girl in side view looking to the right, the dark hair pinned up, a light cloth wrapped around the torso, the shoulders bare, the hands placed together as if in prayer. In the background a tree with blossoms on its branches, behind it a suggested mountain range.
