Full-length portrait of a girl in a seated, stretched posture, her right arm resting on a stone bench, on it a white rabbit. Her left hand rests on her bent legs. The girl wears a white dress with gathered top and short pluster sleeves. Her thick dark hair is partly pinned up and partly falls down over her shoulders. On the head she wears a white hair braid. Background of the picture: park landscape with some indicated trees.

This work, documented as a portrait of a girl, presumably represents the daughter of Crown Prince Archduke Ferdinand: Sophie von Hohenberg, married Countess von Nostitz-Rieneck, 24.7.1901 Konopischt/Konopiště (CZ) to 27.10.1990 Tannhausen (Ö); the first orphan of the First World War.
