(recto) A sketch depicts two nudes and three head and shoulder portraits. The central figure is a head and shoulder sketch of a woman with her hair in a bun, her face in profile. On either side of her are two female nudes, one is seated holding a cloth against her face and the other is kneeling with her hands clasped in front of her. The remaining two figures are at the bottom of the page. Both have a collard shirt, and have chin-length hair. One looks away from the viewer and the other is in profile, smoking a pipe. (verso) A sketch of four nude women in various poses. Two are from behind, the central is seated with one knee up and one is standing, facing the viewer. There is a scratched-out drawing of a head in the upper left corner.
