Full length figure of Sappho, a bare-breasted woman standing on a rocky promontory against an iron grey sky and dark sea. She leans her right arm at shoulder height on the rock and gazes down and to the right. Her dark eyes have shadows beneath them. Her dark wavy hair falls to her shoulders beneath the black gauzy drapery which covers her head, the lower half of her body from waist to ankles, and her left upper arm.
