Helen Wilkinson sits at center and looks directly to the camera. She is viewed from the waist up and faces slightly left as she turns her head towards camera. To the left of her, another woman (possibly Dorothy Mackaye) sits in partial view along the left edge. The unknown woman wears a coat with a fur collar. This woman extends her arm towards Miss Wilkinson. From left to right, a calendar, a door and a plant line the back wall.
