Fashionable elegance

Fashionable elegance

A lady sits in an armchair, her head titled back to the side so that she can see her reflection in the large mirror on the wall behind her. She wears a loose high-waisted dress, giving the appearance of pregnancy, her full figure and large breasts are well-defined. She is wearing gloves and a turban adorned with ostrich feathers. Long locks of hair escaped from the turban, and she holds a fan in her right hand. Beneath the chair is a patterned carpet.
