The head and shoulders of a woman, caricatured, in profile to the right, singing with upturned eyes, holding up a paper in both hands. A wing, foreshortened, and very freely sketched, extends diagonally across her shoulder, and has some resemblance to a part of her dress; her hair is loosely arranged, but its contour is fashionable; her face is blotched with drink. Clouds and a ray of light are indicated in the background.
