Portrait of Maria Brewster Brooks Stafford seated with her body facing almost forward, her head turned to the right, and her gaze directed off to the right. Her dark brown hair is parted in the middle and swept back with small ringlets framing her face. In her lap she holds an open book. She wears a white off-the-shoulder dress with puffed sleeves, a pink sash, and a pink flower pinned to the bodice. A sheer pink shawl is draped over her arms.
Portrait female--Waist length
