Description

Recto: a full length young woman stands next to a tree, on the left, with her name, Amy, carved into the bark. She is wearing a long purple skirt, a matching bodice over a white blouse and a cream shawl with a turquiose stripes. Her hair is decorated with a single flower worn at the side of her head. She appears to be adjusting her hair as she looks at her name carved into the bark. Down the side of the tree are two branches of ivy. At the base of the tree are bluebells and by her feet are ferns. Verso: pencil sketch.
