A thoughtful woman playing guitar, with a small cased image of another woman resting in a cloth on her knee. Touches of gilt applied to the highlights of her jewelry. Housed in a full case.
 
A fascinating image which makes us wonder as to the relation between the guitar-strumming sitter and the friend whose image she holds. (While the small image cannot be easily made out, on close examination it does seem to reveal the outline of a typical 19th-century woman's hairstyle.) Perhaps she remembers the songs they sang together while accompanied by the guitar.
