Photograph shows an interior room with floor to ceiling windows looking onto the deck of the house designed by Marcel Breuer for Rufus and Leslie Stillman. A woman (possibly Leslie Stillman) is reclining in a chair on the deck. Note in German on verso (handwritten): Ueberwurf [?] dunkler so dass Ornamente zurucktreten. First word is difficult to decipher, but a possible translation is "Plaid darker so that ornaments recede" (possibly referring to the pattern on the bedspread).
