Description:
A color photographic portrait of Eartha Kitt. She is wearing a red dress that covers her shoulders and the length of her arms. The dress stops just below her knees. She is standing wearing red high heels with her left leg crossed over her right as she leans against a dark pole behind her. Her arms are bent at right degree angles with her knuckles resting on her hips as she looks over her left shoulder. At the bottom left are two handwritten, cursive inscriptions, one in light blue and one in bright blue. The inscriptions are not legible, but may be signatures.
