Using very minimal lines and smooth strokes, Matisse has been able to portray a nude figure whose contrapposto form is translated into a seated position. The angle of her hips are in opposition to the angle of her shoulders, allowing her torso to be curved and shaped ever so slightly. Furthermore, the elongated upper body is continued beyond her shoulders with her elbows outstretched, her hands hanging down her neck. She is set in a lush scene with billowing pillows and a thick cover which envelops her lower body.
