This painting represents a traditional subject in an unusual high-key pastel palette. A tall lady, dressed in lavender and with a blandly generic face, stands against a backdrop of an aqua-blue lake and green hills. She holds a white falcon and a hookah mouthpiece. A female attendant stands to the right. The rendering of the flowery tree to her left and the distant landscape is cursorily rendered.
