This painting was documented by Hofstede de Groot in 1915, who wrote; "845. A YOUNG WOMAN AT A STONE BALUSTRADE. Bode 19 ; Dut. 283 ; Wb. 352 ; B.-HdG. 274. About thirty-five. Half-length ; life size. She stands, inclined to the left, and looks at the spectator. She holds her fan in her left hand, which rests on the balustrade. Her brown hair is uncovered and falls in ringlets on her brow. Her figured black silk gown is cut out at the throat and trimmed with rosettes ; over it is a triple collar of rich lace, lying flat. She has rich pearls in her ears, on her bosom, round her neck, and on her wrists. A small jewelled medallion is suspended from a black ribbon. Her right hand hangs at her side. She stands in front of a recess with a caryatid to the left ; behind her is a dark curtain. Full daylight falls from the front. Corrections are visible on the lower edge, where there was once a table, and there were large buttons on the left sleeve.
