The portrait of a woman from the chest up is depicted in a Cubist style. She tilts her head, facing the viewer at a slight angle to the left. Her large eyes stare intently ahead and she has a straight nose, full lips and a long neck. She wears a fashionable headress which covers her ears. The facets wich compose her body are incorporated with the facets of the background which are reminiscent of machinery or an industrial landscape. One facet set on her chest represent piece of lace and other facets suggest musical instruments.
