A portrait of the famous Broadway star, Ethel Jackson. Ms. Jackson is facing forward-head bent slightly to the right-with her left arm resting on an ivy-dotted stone wall in what appears to be a garden; there is a pink rose bush to her right, a tree in the background towards the left and a stunning backdrop of the ocean. Her dark hair is covered by a black hat and her beige dress is adorned with lace sleeves and a floral embellishment. Grasped in her right hand is a pink shawl, which is also draped over her left arm. Revealed on the subject's left hand ring finger is a diamond ring, possibly denoting either marriage or engagement.
