She wears long white dress and rests her right arm on a red shawl draped over a chair beside a table.

The presence of an artist's mixing palette, a sketch book and two large artist's folios on the ground suggests that the sitter is likely to be an artist herself.

The sitter bears a striking resemblance to the eldest daughter of Richard Bagot, Bishop of Bath and Wells - a group portrait of nine of Richard's children were painted by Buck in 1825, and is now in the Morgan Library and Museum.
