Portrait of Mary Louisa Somerville seated at a table, her body turned slightly to the left, her gaze directed toward the viewer, her left hand placed on an open book in front of her, and her right hand raised to her head. She wears a dark off-the-shoulder dress trimmed with brocade around the neckline, and her dark hair falls in long ringlets over her shoulders. In the background a rural landscape can be seen through the window.
